1.  LP Lovers Live Longer

Whether you're a heavy sitter or a binge-sitter, racking up prolonged sedentary time increases your risk of early death, according to a study published in Annals of internal Medicine.

That conclusion held up even after researchers took into account of time spent exercising. Even for people who hit the gym after a long day in a desk chair, sitting can be deadly.

The findings led the study's authors to suggest that people who sit a lot should get up and move around every 30 minutes to counter the health risks that come with prolonged sedentary behavior.

The study team tracked the movements of close to 8000 Americans older than 45 by asking them to wear an accelerometer on their hip. “:Accumulation of large amounts of sedentary time is hazardous health behavior regardless of how it is accumulated.” But logging sedentary time in shorter bouts of sitting “is the least harmful pattern of accumulation.” Keene Sentinal 13Se17
