1. WHO - World Health Organization
Taking everything into account, the World Health Organization reports that being physically inactive comes in fourth as a leading risk factor for death. The WHO report also mentioned that” Inactivity was found to be the main cause of about a quarter of breast and colon cancers, 27 percent of diabetes cases, and 30 percent of heart disease cases.”

2. Too Much Sitting
Even when adults meet physical activity guidelines, sitting for prolonged periods can compromise metabolic health. TV time and objective-measurement studies show deleterious associations, and breaking up sedentary time is beneficial. Sitting time, TV time, and time sitting in automobiles increase premature mortality risk. Further evidence from prospective studies, intervention trials, and population-based behavioral studies is required.

6. Why sitting too much is bad for your health
One of the largest pieces of research to date on the subject - involving almost 800,000 people - found that, compared with those who sat the least, people who sat the longest had a:
• 112% increase in risk of diabetes
• 147% increase in cardiovascular events
• 90% increase in death caused by cardiovascular events
• 49% increase in death from any cause

7. Sitting increases your risk of getting cancer in a very big way
Based on a study of more than 220,000 residents in New South Wales, researchers found that the longer you spend sitting down every day, the higher the risk of dying prematurely, even if you engage in regular daily exercise. The study, published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, found that adults who sat for more than 11 hours a day had a 40 percent increased risk of dying within 3 years- from any cause- compared with those who sat for less than 4 hours a day.

The American Institute for Cancer Research held its annual conference early in 2012 and highlighted at that conference were specific research findings showing that 49,000 cases of breast cancer and 43,000 cases of colon cancer in the U.S. could be linked to inactivity.

8. Sitting for prolonged periods increases risk of death, disease: study
Prolonged time spent sitting and being sedentary is associated with an increased risk for heart disease, cancer and death, regardless of physical activity, according to a new study.

The meta-analysis review, published Monday in the Annals of Internal Medicine, examined 47 different studies that looked at sedentary behaviour and a range of negative health outcomes
.
The review found that prolonged periods spent sitting was associated with a greater risk for all-cause mortality, heart disease incidence and death, cancer incidence and death, and Type 2 diabetes in adults.

8. The Truth About “The Truth About Sitting Down”
How Sitting Wrecks Your Body?
As soon as you sit:

• Enzymes that help break down fat drop 90%
After 2 hours: Good cholesterol drops20%
After 24 hours: Insulin effectiveness drops24% and risk of diabetes rises

10. Australian Workplace and Sitting
The average Australian worker spends almost 33 hours per week at the workplace. Those working full time in jobs that involve ‘mostly sitting’ spend on average 6.3 hours per day sitting at work.

Many Australians are sitting longer than they are sleeping - sitting longer than 8hrs a day can increase risk of early death by 15%- focus on breaking up long periods into shorter periods by getting up and moving"

While most of the evidence to date relates to the health effects of overall sedentary behaviour, a high proportion of workers are exposed to prolonged sitting at work and there is a growing amount of evidence on adverse health effects associated with sedentary work.  Sedentary work may occur in both office-based occupations as well as other occupations which may have less scope for changed postures, such as call centre staff, crane operators and truck drivers.

11.The News on Sitting Down; You May Want to Stand Up
Humans weren't designed to sit all day. As such, sitting for long periods is a serious occupational health and safety problem. When your daily routine includes sitting for extended periods, the muscles in your legs that normally help pump blood aren't used much and as a result, blood can flow backwards in leg veins and pool, causing varicose veins and blood clots.

12. Australians spend one month a year sitting watching TV
Australian adults spend on average four hours per day doing sedentary leisure activities such as watching television compared with only half an hour of physical activity, according to data released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics today.
Dr Paul Jelfs, from the Australian Bureau of Statistics, said the 2011-12 data reveals a tendency for high levels of sedentary behaviour across the adult population.

13. Impact of sitting and television viewing on life expectancy in the USA
The estimated gains in life expectancy in the US population were 2.00 years for reducing excessive sitting to <3 h/day and a gain of 1.38 years from reducing excessive television viewing to <2 h/day.
See full report
In 2010, for example, the journal Circulation published an investigation following 8,800 adults for seven years. Those who sat for more than four hours a day while watching television had a 46 percent increase in deaths from any cause when compared with
people who sat in front of the tube for less than two hours. Other researchers have found that sitting for more than half the day, approximately, doubles the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular problems.

Overall, when you combine all causes of death and compare any group of sitters with those who are more active, sitters have a 50 percent greater likelihood of dying.

3. Americans are increasingly becoming inactive and risking their health.
More Americans Lived A Sedentary Lifestyle In 2014; Number Of Physically Active Hits Lowest In 6 Years
Americans reduced their physical activity in 2014, despite the exploding popularity of wearable fitness trackers and apps, marked by a burgeoning market offering countless options.
On Wednesday, the Physical Activity Council (PAC) released its 2015 Participation Report, which found that 82.7 million Americans, or 28.3 percent, matched the council's definition of physically inactive last year.
