Sitting down less 'can reduce diabetes risk'

A new study has revealed how sitting down for extended periods could be linked to an increased risk of developing diabetes and a range of other health conditions.

Researchers from University College London have determined that individuals who spend less than 12 hours per week sitting down could have a risk of diabetes that is 75 per cent lower than their more sedentary counterparts, the Daily Mail reports.

Furthermore, the report found that those who spend up 90 per cent of leisure time sitting down had considerably larger waists than those who are more active.

Study author Dr Joshua Bell commented: "Both high levels of physical activity and low levels of leisure time sitting may be required to substantially reduce the risk of becoming obese."

Individuals keen to exercise more might like to consider investing in oxygen equipment; helping them to more effectively fuel their muscles for extended periods of activity.
