WALKING AND SITTING.
I have seen this in two places so I believe it is true. People who sit five to six hours a day have a higher increase in cancer. Colon and I forgot the other one - by 40 % or so.
I am guilty of that sometimes myself! The answer is to get up every hour for five minutes - walk around do something. Easy and healthy.
I read in AARPS a short article called The Only Exercise You''ll Ever Need: WALKING
"Walking may be the single best-and easiest-exercise you can do to improve your health in 2012.
Helps cut heart disease-dementia-brain loss- diabetes. And not marathon walking - peak benefits from 30 minutes of exercise several times a week.
Keep it up and you will lose weight. There was a man - Rick Genter - who lose 186 pounds.
Get a pedometer and if you walk 5000 steps or less you are sedentary. Work you way up to 10,000 steps, which is considered active.
No gym, no equipment just walk.
Little goals ate first. Start slow just never give up.
Start with five minutes and work up."
Okay I am going to start this. I do ride my stationary bike every morning for 30 minutes but I must not be doing it as fast as I should be - lol. I am going to add walking. Five minutes every hour either around my house or somewhere.
TO THIS? WHAT DO YOU THINK?
Then I'd kill two birds with one stone!
