    New study finds the maximum amount of time you can sit before harming your heart


    ... The data spanned an 11-year period and 720,425 participants in total who together had a mean age of 54.5 years.

    Researchers also included lying down in their definition of sedentary time.

    From their analysis the team found that sitting for 10 hours a day was the number of hours of sedentary time at which an increased risk of cardiac problems becomes noticeable ...

    The team also found that those in the highest sedentary time category of 12.5 hours on average a day were 14 percent more likely to experience heart problems than those who sat for just 2.5 hours on average each day.
