Sitting Can Shorten Your Life

An hour of exercise most days may be a great way to help you lose or control weight to better manage your PCOS symptoms.
 
But it’s not enough to increase your chances of a long life if you spend lengthy periods during the rest of your day sitting down.
 
Prolonged sitting promotes a lack of whole-body muscle movement, which Swedish researchers say is the more accurate way to define sedentary behavior.
 
For example, recent evidence has shown that sitting in front of the TV for hours on end can raise your risk of early death from heart disease. A woman’s risk of PCOS-linked, heart-damaging metabolic syndrome (syndrome x) jumps 26% for every extra hour she sits in front of the TV, according to one study. Whole-body muscular inactivity associated with prolonged sitting has also been strongly linked to obesity and even certain types of cancer.
 
Although the cause-effect relationship between prolonged sitting and bad health needs to be more clearly established, researchers say it appears that muscle movement and contractions may play a role in controlling important blood fats.
