•Australians and office workers in particular, spend most of their waking hours sitting — the average adult sits for nine hours a day while office workers sit for two thirds of their working hours.
•Long periods of sitting increases the risk of developing chronic diseases like heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some cancers.
•People who sit for more than eight hours a day are at a 15% greater risk of early death, and those who sit for longer than 11 hours a day are at a 40% greater risk of early death, than those who sit less.
•Perhaps surprisingly, even if someone exercises regularly, sitting for too long will still put them at risk of developing chronic diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some forms of cancer.
