No, really… it’s good for you. USA Today is reporting this morning that new research being presented at American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) in Washington, D.C shows that “prolonged sitting” can increase your risk of cancer – and specifically colon and breast cancer.
While “prolonged sitting” is a stupid way to describe it the message is sound and the idea isn’t new. Sedentary lifestyles don’t just make you fat and increase the risk of hypertension, heart attack, stroke, and Type 2 diabetes; but it can give you the dreaded C word!
As you know, I love boobies and want to save them… so TAKE A HIKE ALREADY! (As little as a 30 minute walk a day can lower your risk, mmm’kay?)
Go Outside Already!
