Thanks Claire this is AWESOME info.

It reminds me of the article I posted a while back about those who have CKD and do not move or exercise.

I think I reposted it once - will see if I can find it and repost again!

An article in the Atlantic, April 19th. The results of this study are eye opening!

Here's the first paragraph (I've added the asterisks):

A study of more than 200,000 Australians adds to the growing body of evidence that people who sit the most die the soonest. It also found that ****you can't exercise this effect away, though exercise does help reduce it greatly****.

And another paragraph:

Its most striking finding was that people who sat more than 11 hours a day had a 40% higher risk of dying in the next three years than people who sat less than four hours a day. This was after adjusting for factors such as age, weight, physical activity and general health status, all of which affect the death risk. It also found a clear dose-response effect: the more people sat, the higher their risk of death.

Here's a link to the complete article:
