Melbourne: Sitting less than three hours each day may increase your life expectancy by two years, a new study has claimed.According to the researchers, being sedentary is an independent risk factor.This means that no matter how much gym time you log or how many vegetables you consume, being on your butt for long periods of time every day can shave years off your life. Sitting for long period is almost as harmful to your health as smoking, study author Peter T. Katzmarzyk of the Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, said.The researchers aren’t exactly sure of how being on your feet increases your life span, but past research has shown that your large leg muscles are inactive when you’re seated.
