London: People who have decided to carry on with a desk job for the rest of their life may need to revisit their big decision -- a study suggests that spending ten years or more in a sedentary job almost doubles the risk of some types of bowel cancer.
Researchers also found sedentary working patterns increased the chances of cancer of the rectum by 44 percent over a ten-year period.The researchers said their findings suggest no amount of leisure time activity can offset the harm done from long periods of sitting down on the job. Bowel cancer symptoms include thin stools, stomach cramping, bright red blood on your poop, unexplained weight loss, fatigue, and feeling like you have to "go" when you don`t. IANS
