Research by the British Medical Journal shows that the majority of society are now spending significant amounts of time sitting daily, leading to an increased risk
for many chronic diseases and premature death.
The study combined 8 previous studies from the US, the UK and Scandinavia where 36,000 individuals wore a fitness tracker/accelerometer for 6 years. The results
suggest strong links between physical activity and the risk of death - irrespective of the intensity of the activity. An increase in the total amount of physical
activity - regardless of intensity - substantially reduced the risk of dying.
