Terrifying Infographic on the Health Dangers of Sitting

If the New York Times article from a few weeks back about how sitting down will make you fat and/or kill you wasn’t frightening enough, now, there’s an infographic on the same subject, complete with chairs casting sinister shadows as they spout such statistics as “Sitting 6+ hours per day makes you up to 40% likelier to die within 15 years than someone who sits less than 3. Even if you exercise.” The presentation is a tad on the sensationalistic side, and it’s from a site called “Medical Billing and Coding,” but it’s hard not to be a little spooked by stuff like this if you are a knowledge worker by profession.
