  1. oh no! ive been sitting on my ass for like 14 hours a day since i was 15 playing computer games. now, im 25 and shit im still alive. and tbh this is just not beliveable unless you refere to actual science! and btw i have no symptoms like the ones mention above. dont let this scare you from sitting haha. and btw making a statement like this without refering to actual science is just as inteligent as the article itself.
    25 years and stil sitting.
    have a nice day

    • That’s a relief! I’m a gamer too i am sitting almost 10 hours a day. And i am worried when i saw this post. But i am not now worried because of your statement. 😀

      • I’m a gamer and I sit this way most of the day. I’ve been doing it since I was ten and now, twelve years later I’m absolutely fine.

        The worst thing that can happen sitting like this is getting Hemorrhoid, but you’d have to be sitting for hours on end, all day every day without any exercise and when I say exercise, I mean the simple act of walking around your house XD

        Although it doesn’t hurt to do some brisk walking. How to stay healthy? Don’t smoke, brisk walking 40 minutes three times a week and eat a salad every once in a while.

        It just so happens that this isn’t rocket science XD

        PS: Sitting is the new smoking??? Now that’s just fear mongering.

  2. Wow! You guys just don’t think do you? Hell I’ve been sitting like a jackass for loads of hours a day, at work or just playing games- truth is: Until your’e thirty something your body naturally still keeps you ok. After that you got a downfall unless you take care of your body. Be it jogging, walking, going to the gym, doing yoga, pilates or just plain and simple sit-ups, push-ups and squats. Eating healthy is also a great way of helping your body. I’m 27 atm but I only recently (2 years) started taking proper care of my body: Don’t smoke no more, drink once a week or two, excersise 6 days a week, do yoga twice a week in class 3 days on my own. I eat more veggies, frruit and less meat. I feel great. Of course it’s up to every one how they think about what is good for them: It is your body in the end. My main point is: This article tells the truth and just because your young and don;t see anything bad yet does not mean the article is false.
    Take good care of your Body, ming=d and spirit.

  3. Really? Sitting? Wow what’s next, breathing? Come on people we’ve lived on earth for 100k years by sitting, it wont kill us. Chill, and have a seat, please.

  4. Link to the original picture? It would be nice because your wordpress or whatever engine you’re using on this site is not lossless compression. The text is unreadable.
