‘Our chairs are slowly but surely killing us': Fatty liver disease linked to sedentary lifestyle

Avoid snarky Scales by sitting less and walking more.
We all know by now that a sedentary lifestyle — characterized by slouching at a desk or lying in front of your TV — can negatively impact both your mental and physical health. Some researchers have even gone so far to say that sitting can kill you. Now, new research adds to the evidence that sitting wreaks havoc on our health. The study, published in the Journal of Hepatology, found that too much sitting and not enough exercise increased the prevalence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) among middle-aged Koreans. NAFLD is a condition in which fat accumulates in the liver, specifically in people who rarely drink alcohol. In some cases, it inflames and scars the organ, which can sometimes progress to liver failure.
