Even when we meet physical activity guidelines, prolong sitting increase premature death risk. In this article we are discussing detrimental effects of too much sitting. Sedentary behaviors include sitting during travel to and from work, in the workplace and at home during leisure time. Sedentary behaviors are in the energy expenditure range of 1.0 to 1.5 METs (multiples of the basal metabolic rate). More studies are needed to form specific guidelines and advice that can be given to patients and the general population.
