Sedentary women: Sit less, live more!

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

Even lay persons know that a sedentary lifestyle is unhealthy. Still, the majority of people do not comply with current recommendations for physical activity. Data on the ill effects of sedentarism keep on increasing, clearly showing a significant adverse impact and increased risk for cardiovascular disease, cancer, fracture and various overweight-related metabolic conditions. The simple fact that prolonged sitting is associated with a shorter life span must be repeatedly discussed with our patients.
