Death by Sitting explains in a comprehensible and accessible format, with scientific accuracy exactly how sitting has become “the new smoking”.   

Sitting for extended periods of time in an office chair day after day has never been part of our genomic imprint. The fact that this has become the status quo is wreaking havoc on our physical health and making us unhappy.

The need for movement has been hardwired within our innate composition. Evolution has shaped humans into the ultimate predator, able to move quickly and efficiently in order to hunt and gather, covering substantial distances over time. It is only in recent history that physical effort and stamina have become pursuits of personal interest or leisure. 

We can no longer take this sitting down. It is time for a movement revolution. This book will explain why.

Why We Need A Movement Revolution
Scientific findings over the past decade overwhelmingly echo a powerful message: sitting not only weakens the musculoskeletal system – causing chronic and sometimes debilitating pain – it heavily increases one’s risk for diabetes, overweight, heart disease, stroke and cancer, while affecting our cognitive and mental health, and making us more susceptible to depression and dementia. 
And, contrary to popular belief, daily exercise is unable to counteract the ill effects of a sedentary lifestyle.
