Two hours sitting in a chair, equal to one cigarette
Sitting for 2 hours or more damages health just like smoking.
This is the final conclusion that some doctors have come to.
Being sedentary leads to health problems such as diabetes and heart disease. So two hours sitting, without moving, is the same as having smoked a cigarette.
This static posture causes stiffness in the veins of the entire body, significantly increasing the possibility of bone fractures, as Dr. Priyanka Rohatgi of Apollo Hospitals in Bengaluru explained.
