Taken from ' Secrets of People Who Never Get Sick ' by Gene Stone, sitting for prolonged periods of time is detrimental to your health, even if you exercise regularly. The more you sit, the more you will be of poor health.
Excessive sitting causes obesity and colon cancer. You are twice as likely to develop pulmonary embolism or blood clot in your lungs if you sit most of the day.

Don't sit in one place for more than 45 minutes at a stretch.
Get up and walk around. Sit down again if you need to.
