Com-me.com, Scientists have made new arguments about why and how much sitting increases the risk of many serious illnesses. 
For a long time believe that excessive sitting was only harmful to the spine, but new scientific knowledge confirms that it is destructive to the whole organism.

Everyday sitting at work causes many diseases, of which the most dangerous are diabetes and cardiovascular problems, according to researchers from the University of Leicester, based on analyzes that involved 800,000 people.

Even for those who practice sitting is bad. The first thing they are suffering from is the back: because of poor body state, there are severe pains in the shoulders, neck and back.

Heart problems

Muscles burn less fat, and blood flows slower through the body during sitting, allowing fatty acids to easily break the artery of the heart.

Long sitting is associated with an increase in blood pressure and elevated cholesterol, and those who sit have a double chance of suffering from cardiovascular disease.
