We all know that sitting for extensive periods of time is bad for your health. But why is it bad for your heart? Sitting demands so little from your heart. Well, I’m going to explain why and how.
We all heard that sitting on end is unhealthy. People who sit more than 9-10 hours are prone to get diabetes and other heart problems. Even if we exercise, the risks still remain high. Excessive sitting has also been assosiated with heart failure, a condition in which the heart becomes weaker and can’t pump enough blood to support the body. As I mentioned, sitting demands so little from the heart. Well, a group of cardiologists proved that.
A group of cardiologists decided to test this out. They pulled about 1,700 healthy participants with no heart symptoms.They checked their blood samples for Torponis-proteins produced by cardiac muscle cells. When they are hurt or dying, the heart releases troponis into the blood stream. They checked how much people sat and the experiment showed that no matter how much the people moved, the sitting was associated with unhealthy troponin.p.
