Chairs have become major killers of Koreans
Korean scientists have concluded that a sedentary lifestyle is the main factor leading to high mortality of the inhabitants of South Korea. It turns out that the unavailability of physical activity has led to an epidemic of fatty liver disease.

It is well known that the sitting style of life leads to the development of obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. But recent research scientists from South Korea have proven that lack of physical activity leads among other things to the development of fatty liver disease, which subsequently flows into cirrhosis and leads to death, LiveScience informs.

The researchers were concerned about the large number of cases of the disease each year, carrying away thousands of the inhabitants of South Korea. Surveying 139 thousand subjects of both sexes, researchers measured their levels of physical activity and time spent on vacation. Parallel using ultrasound, they checked the condition of the liver of the participants.

The study found that people who sat for 10 or more hours a day in one place, increased the risk of developing fatty liver disease by 9%. Those who held the chair for less than 5 hours per day, this risk was not observed. With that, the victims of this insidious disease has become even those patients who had a low body mass index.

"The conclusion is obvious - our own chairs and armchairs are slowly but surely killing us. The body of the inhabitant of our planet by his own nature is adapted to the movement, and it is not surprising that a sedentary life style greatly affects our physiology. Despite the presence of thousands of pharmaceuticals from fatty liver disease, we still have to force patients to change their lifestyles. We need to stand up and go, literally and figuratively," - commented on the opening of Michael Trenell from the Institute of Newcastle (England).
