One hour of physical activity offsets increased risk of death from sitting

July 29, 2016

About 60 to 75 minutes of moderate intensity physical activity negated the increased risk for death associated with sitting for 8 hours each day, according to findings published in The Lancet.

Ulf Ekelund, PhD, professor at the Norwegian School of Sport Sciences, in Oslo, and colleagues also reported that this level of activity mitigates, but does not completely offset, the increased risk for death associated with long periods of watching television.
