BOSTON (CBS) — We could be sitting ourselves to death, reports WBZ-TV’s Dr. Mallika Marshall. Researchers at Columbia University looked at nearly 8,000 middle age and older adults and found they sat on average 11 to 12 hours a days. They also found that sitting for more than 12 hours on a given day increased the risk of death, regardless of how much they exercised. But people who kept periods of sitting to less than 30 minutes had a lower risk of death. This isn’t the first study to find that sitting is dangerous, but it is the largest to link sedentary time with the risk of death. And now some experts co...
