Sitting is Killing You

Medical Billing & Coding has developed an interesting and informative infographic detailing the cons of sitting at a desk all day.

Some of the more interesting statistics include:

  • We’re sitting down an average of 9.3 hours per day
  • Sitting 6+ hours a day can increase the risk of death by up to 40%
  • People with “sitting jobs” have twice the rate of cardiovascular disease
  • Sitting at an angle of 135 degrees puts less strain on your neck and back
