Study: Sitting for long periods, cancer risk linked in men
A new study finds that men who spend more than six hours a day sitting are at a higher risk of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.
Office workers and drivers are in particular danger.
Researchers followed more than 63,000 men, age 45 to 65, who recorded how long they sat each day, along with any health problems they experienced.
Those who sat less than four hours a day were significantly less likely to suffer from chronic disease.
