I am Dr. Mary Williams, a research biologist who is concerned with the increasingly sedentary nature of how we live.
Our workstyle has evolved to intense, prolonged sitting at a computer or desk, for more than 50% of the workday. This decline in physical activity during our waking hours has negatively impacted our health over the long term.
Obesity and overweight affect two-thirds of the population and are major health risks for heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Further, prolonged sitting can result in poor circulation and the potential formation of venous blood clots or deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
For many of us, our leisure pursuits are also sedentary. We spend the remaining waking hours relaxing on the sofa, watching television or playing video games.
Research indicates that 10% of long distance air travlers and workers at a desk or computer will develop venous blood clots in the lower limbs during prolonged sitting.
Health experts recommend 5, minutes of physical activity for every 40-50 minutes of sitting. Our sample survey of Tucson Office workers indicated that more than 50% sat continuously for 3-4 hours and over 80% for 2 or more hours.
