In a recent study published by Journal of the National Cancer Institute, people who spend more time sitting throughout the day increase their risk of cancer by 66 percent, compared to those who move around.
There was no link found between sitting and breast, prostate, or non-Hodgkin lymphoma cancer, but for a majority of other cancers, risks were present.
Being sedentary gave participants a 24 percent higher risk of colon cancer, a 21 percent higher risk of lung cancer and a 32 percent higher risk of endometrial cancer.
Upon even further investigation, researchers especially found that watching TV created a 66 percent risk increase for endometrial cancer and a 54 percent risk increase for colon cancer.
