Can Sitting Down Pose Serious Health Risks? [Infographic]

health risks of sitting

As humans have advanced, we’ve become a rather lazy species. Sitting down has become the main activity that most of us do everyday, but we don’t realize that we could be jeopardizing our health by doing so.

The infographic below, orginally found on Brainz.org, shows us how dangerous an excessive amount of sitting down can be to our health. Before you say it, yes, I know correlation does not always imply causation but the statistics below are interesting nonetheless and I think we can all agree that a little more exercise and a little less time sitting on our butts would be good for everyone!

Let me know what your thoughts are in the comments section and don’t forget to take a look at some more interesting infographics!
