Continued inactivity may contribute to certain cancers

the ONA take:

In recent studies sedentariness has been linked to a variety of adverse conditions, but now a study published in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute suggests that inactivity also directly correlates to cancer risk.

Researchers from the University of Regensburg implemented a meta-study that incorporated data from 43 earlier studies, with a total of over 4 million participants. All the incorporated studies collected data from respondents about the time they spent sitting, including both occupational and recreational sitting time, and 69,000 cancer case emerged.

Data revealed that the longer a person sat, the greater the risk for certain types of cancer, particularly endometrial cancer (32% higher risk) and colon cancer (24% higher risk). Each 2-hour increase in sitting time increased the risk. Sitting while watching television corresponded with the highest risk.
