Researchers have been aware for several decades that physical inactivity is bad for health, and that accumulating half an hour of moderate activity each day can reduce rates of diabetes, heart disease, delay the ageing process and improve mental health and wellbeing.

A very recent set of research studies has started to report on 'sitting time', especially prolonged sitting, as a new risk factor, especially for diabetes, obesity and cardiovascular health. This talk will explain the scientific evidence and indicate how and why prolonged sitting is a new health concern.

This is the second in the inaugural series of Sydney Medical School annual public lectures, "21st Century Medicine: today's research, tomorrow's healthcare" : http://sydney.edu.au/medicine/21st-ce...
