Sedentary Lifestyle Cancels Benefits of Exercising

Jan 19, 2010
People, who spend most of their time sitting at the computer or TV, are at increased risk of numerous diseases, even if they are exercising regularly.

The research conducted by Swedish scientists at the Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, showed that one hour of sedentary time, spent on TV watching increases the risk of developing metabolic syndrome by 26 percent, even if you perform regular moderate to intensive exercises. According to the study 30 minutes of moderate exercising lowers the risk of this condition by the same percentage, which indicates that physical inactivity neutralizes the positive effects of work-outs.

Metabolic syndrome is a condition that is characterized by high blood pressure, high cholesterol level, insulin resistance and abdominal obesity. The condition is linked to bigger risk of coronary heart disease, diabetes and other diseases, while physical activity is known to protect against cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, obesity and other conditions related to metabolic syndrome.

The findings of the study suggest that not only exercising is important, but limiting sedentary time, scientists say. Specialists recommend increasing physical activity by doing such simple things as climbing stairs, rather than using an elevator, walking, rather than driving and taking frequent breaks from computer work.
