Is sitting the new smoking?

I came across an article in USA Today about the major health risks associated with sitting. And guess what... even if someone gets the recommended "30 minutes a day of moderate exercise" it is still not enough.

Here's a quick summery of the findings...

"A recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (AJCN) as well as findings released late last year by the American In
stitute for Cancer Research are causing experts to reconsider the importance of moving throughout the day in addition to getting regular exercise."

Basically, we all have to "MOVE" throughout the day too.

"Is sitting the new smoking?" 
The article compared sitting all day to the damage caused by smoking. WOW!
