Sitting less may extend American lives: study

Friday, July 13, 2012


American adults may boost their life expectancy by two years by sitting for fewer than three hours a day, researchers said Tuesday, while admitting this was a tough task.
Reducing television viewing to under two hours a day could similarly add 1.4 years, the US team said in a paper in the online journal BMJ Open.

A recent study found that US adults spend about 7.7 hours per day engaged in “sedentary behaviour”.
