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.
