The Washington Post published an article Jan. 20 that showed how people’s bodies are impacted from too much sitting. Sitting can lead to heart disease, colon cancer and a foggy brain, among other issues, according to a graphic created by The Washington Post.
“We know sitting too much is bad, and most of us intuitively feel a little guilty after a long TV binge. But what exactly goes wrong in our bodies when we park ourselves for nearly eight hours per day, the average for a U.S. adult? Many things, say four experts, who detailed a chain of problems from head to toe,” wrote Bonnie Berkowitz and Patterson Clark for The Washington Post.
