How sedentary behavior affects your health


A growing body of research suggests that prolonged sitting throughout the day may be harmful to your health. In this video, Neville Owen, PhD, explains the research linking sitting and negative health outcomes.

Following the talk, Owen took questions from the audience and discussed the effects of prolonged sitting on children and offered recommendations for changing the work environment to reduce sedentary behavior. A video of the discussion is also available on YouTube.
