This means that long periods of sitting were associated with increased risk of death, even if the people engaged in exercise during their leisure time. The following chart shows that sitting 6 or more hours per day was associated with a greater risk of death at all levels of physical activity in women.

Published Yammer Sandbox.

I’ve been tracking a service called Yammer for a while now, but it recently expanded to include new features that make it a potentially interesting tool for staff communication.
