Sitting long may develop cancer in humans: Study

201

Researchers said that sitting too long may develop certain types of cancer. Experts said that those who spend much time sitting every day, either inform of TV or at work may be at higher risk for developing  cancer.

The study found an additional two hours a day of sedentary behavior was linked to an 8 percent increase in colon cancer risk, a 10 percent increase in endometrial cancer risk and a 6 percent increase in risk for lung cancer. It did not find the same connection for breast, rectum, ovary and prostate cancers or for non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
