Maybe you shouldn’t be. The below chart was at Andrew Sullivan’s blog this morning, but I don’t know how accurate it is. It claims that long hours of sitting is deadly. Intuitively, this seems plausible.
The information—if it is information and not, in reality, a manufactured collection of factoids—comes from an advertising site called “MedicalBillingandCoding.org” (I know, it sounds fishy; probably not a good source for medical information.) Still, what’s being claimed is disturbing enough to pass along (in the event that it is even remotely accurate). And it does offer numerous references at the end, though I haven’t attempted to check them.
