Sitting increases risk of death and diseases

The truth about sitting down

Whether tending our crops or hunting wild boar most of our lives as humans were lived on our feet. But with the advent of TV, Computers and desk job we're sitting down more than ever before in history.(9.3 hours a day, )
Even more time than we spend sleeping (7.7 hours). Our bodies weren't built for that and it's starting to take its toll. You might want to stand up for this.

Sitting increases risk of death up to 40%

Sitting 6+ hours per day makes you up to 40% likelier to die within 15 years than someone who sits less than 3. Even if you exercise.

Sitting makes us Fat

Obese people sit for 2.5 more hours per day than thin people.

Between 1980 and 2000:
  • Execise rates stayed the same
  • Sitting increase 8%
  • Obesity doubled

Sitting expends almost no energy

 How sitting wrecks your body????

As soon as you sit:
  • Electrical activity in the leg muscles shuts off.
  • People with sitting jobs have twice the rate of Cardiovascular disease as people with standing jobs.
  • Calorie burning drops to 1 per minute.
  • Enzymes that help break fat drop 90%.
  • After 2 hours Good Cholesterol drops 20%
  • After 24 hours effectiveness drops 24% and risk of diabetes rises.

 How to get out of your chair alive.

For many of us, sitting for 8 hours a day at our job is inevitable. But it's the extra sitting outside of work that turns a serious problem deadly.

The recommended 30 minutes of activity per day is not enough. Interrupt sitting whenever you can by,
doing stretching
walking / marching in place 
jumping jacks
walking burns 3-5 times the calorie that sitting does.
Take every opportunity to walk around the office.

The human body simply isn't built to sit for long periods of time. A hundred years age, when we were all out toiling in the fields and factories, obesity was basically non existent. But since we can't exactly run free in the fields till the end of our days, we have to help our bodies in other ways. We have to stand up for our right to stand up.

These two acids play a key role towards food fermentation and digestion. Our Body system digests the food only through fermentation process. There is no mixi and grinder used for digestion.  All we know that, any acid kept in contact with the flesh and muscles harms us. Whereas in Stomach, these two acids are separated by the stuff called mucous gel from the stomach to protect it from external forces.
