Sitting May Contribute to Building Fat around Organs
A new study from the United Kingdom finds that sedentary lifestyle may significantly contribute to building fat around internal organs.
The study included MRI scanning of 124 patients who were at risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The researchers also measured how much time these people spent sitting with the help of accelerometers.
Having analyzed the received results, the scientists found that the more time people spent sitting during the day, the more visceral and abdominal fat they had.
Lead study author Dr. Joe Henson, a research associate at the University of Leicester, says: “Using MRI techniques and physical activity monitors we have shown that the more time spent sedentary, the stronger the association with higher level of internal and abdominal fat. This was particularly so if the long periods of sedentary behavior were uninterrupted.”
