    If you are sitting while reading this, then you may be risking your life. It takes a lot of attention these days to keep up to date on what lifestyle practices will shorten or extend your life. There seems to be no end to research findings that tell you to stop doing what you are used to enjoying. Here is yet another research result that you should take seriously. A large study of more than 17,000 people age 18 to 90 that were followed for 12 years found that the death rate was almost three times higher among those that spent almost all of their time in a week sitting, as compared to those that spent almost none of their time sitting. ThatÂ’s right, the more you sit, the sooner you die. Who would have thought?

    Hmmm.......... Sedentary people die sooner than physically active people. Now where have I heard that before?
