Sitting Time and All-Cause Mortality Risk in 222 497 Australian Adults
Prolonged sitting is considered detrimental to health, but evidence regarding the independent relationship of total sitting time with all-cause mortality is limited. This study aimed to determine the independent relationship of sitting time with all-cause mortality.
The study comes to an interesting conclusion: Prolonged sitting is a risk factor for all cause mortality, independent of physical activity. Public health programs should focus on reducing sitting time in addition to increasing physical activity levels.
