Living a sedentary lifestyle is a health risk for many and may increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. Researchers have been studying the connection between sitting for long periods and the increased risk of developing diabetes or related disabling conditions.
Recently, researchers in Europe reviewed the findings of 18 different studies on the health of nearly 800,000 adults in the U.S., Canada, Australia, Europe and Japan, and measured different sitting activities, such as watching TV or driving a car. The researchers concluded that prolonged sitting produced poorer health, including the risk of type 2 diabetes. Some of the findings even suggested that sitting too long could double the risk of becoming diabetic!
