Paris: Lying around for long stretches outside of work doubles the risk of dangerous blood clots in the lungs, according to a study among women released today.
The study, published online by the British Medical Journal (BMJ), is led by Christopher Kabrhel at Massachusetts General Hospital. Researchers called for further work to see if the results also applied to men, and to people not of European origin. They also pointed out that the mean age of the women studied was 55, leaving open the question of whether younger women would be subject to the same risks.PTI
