Skate Stand Or Die: Sitting Will Kill You
Research is preliminary, but several studies suggest people who spend most of their days sitting are more likely to be fat, have a heart attack or even die.
"After four hours of sitting, the body starts to send harmful signals," Ekblom-Bak said. She explained that genes regulating the amount of glucose and fat in the body start to shut down.
...in a study published last year that tracked more than 17,000 Canadians for about a dozen years, researchers found people who sat more had a higher death risk, independently of whether or not they exercised.
Makes you wonder, doesn't it? At least for a minute until you study the informational graphic a little closer and discover the actual purpose behind this "research". Spot it? Nice try, Nintendo. We're onto you.
Thanks to High Tide, who's pissed he's gonna have to start wearing pants to work.
