    The 2010 American Cancer Society study published in the American Journal of Epidemiology followed 123,216 individuals 69,776 woman and 53,440 men from 1993 to 2016. The alarming results: People who were inactive and sat over 6 hours a day were 94% more likely to die during the time period studied than those who were physically active and sat less than 3 hours a day. Findings were independent of physical activity levels the negative effects of sitting were just as strong in people who exercised regularly.
    A January 2008 British Journal of Sports Medicine article suggests that people who sit for long periods of time have an increased risk of disease.

    VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Breaking up prolonged sitting with 5 minutes of standing every half hour can improve postprandial glucose metabolism just as well as can 5-minute walking bouts among overweight, postmenopausal women with prediabetes, a new study finds.

    Results were presented 2015 at the World Diabetes Congress 2015 by Joseph Henson, MD, of the Diabetes Research Centre, University of Leicester, United Kingdom, and were published online simultaneously in Diabetes Care.Study subjects were 30 postmenopausal women with impaired glucose tolerance.One group was randomized to simply sit still for 7.5 hours straight lavatory visits were made via wheelchair, while a second group stood for 5 minutes every 30 minutes, and a third group walked on a treadmill for 5 minutes every 30 minutes total 6.5 hours sitting and 1 hour standing or walking.On day 2, those who had interrupted their sitting with standing on day 1 had a 19% reduction in postprandial glucose levels compared with those who had been sitting on day 1. Dr Henson noted that results of previous studies of breaking up sitting time in overweight and obese adults have also demonstrated benefit and suggest that the same effect would likely be seen among other populations in addition to postmenopausal women with prediabetes.

    Sitting for more than 1 hour has been shown to induce biochemical changes in lipoprotein lipase activity, an enzyme involved in fat metabolism and in glucose metabolism that leads to the deposit of fats in adipose tissue rather than these being metabolized by muscle, and extensive sitting also relates to heart disease risks
