Cardiologists Warn: Exercising Won’t Help for Excessive Sitting
Dr. Barbara George, director of the Center for Cardiovascular Lifestyle Medicine at Winthrop-University Hospital in Mineola, N.Y., said: “All studies are indicating that moving more throughout the day, in addition to getting the recommended 30 minutes of moderate activity on a daily basis, is necessary to lower one’s risk of heart disease and other causes of mortality.”
According to the American Heart Association, the new statement gives growing evidence that exercise isn’t enough to eliminate the unhealthy effects of sitting.
Also, heart experts warn that excessive sitting affects more than just heart disease risk – it may also be connected to the increased risk of diabetes, impaired insulin sensitivity, and the higher risk of death from any cause.
