Here’s an introduction to the latest disease to hit modern man – it’s called the ‘sitting disease’!

Other medical studies prove how these inactive ‘sitting’ hours significantly impact the chances of earlier-than-normal death. This infographic presents more such numbers that highlight the unhealthy nexus between modern sedentary lifestyles and ill-health.
