Within about two weeks of each other, two of my friends had serious health problems. One is close to 60 years old and one was 52. The 52 year old had a stroke and passed away within 24 hours. The 60 year old had multiple blood clots in his leg and some made it into his lungs.
Both of them had similar backgrounds with sports, but that was a long time back. In more recent years their endeavors had them sitting several hours every day.
“Sitting is the new smoking” has become one of the new battle cries of folks that are working to inform folks that longer life may not equal quality of life.
I know anything may happen to any of us at any time, but the so called “experts” claim that sitting more than 45 minutes without at least a short walk increases the risk of an early death.
