Is Your Chair Trying To Kill You?

It's one of the biggest health dangers since smoking…and you're probably doing it RIGHT NOW.  Are you sitting down?  Because that’s it!  (No really, that’s the health danger.  Sitting.) If you sit for more than four hours a day, your heart disease risk goes up 60 percent, according to a study from University College London.
Ali, who enjoys sitting as much as the next person, didn’t want to believe the hype.  So she asked AJ Jacobs, author of Drop Dead Healthy: One Man’s Humble Quest for Bodily Perfection, if there were any truth in the warnings.
Sadly, according to him, “If you sit all day, it’s bad for your weight, metabolism, and blood sugar level.”
But with so many other health threats out there, a person’s got to prioritize.  So Ali asked AJ to rank the hazards of smoking, motorcycles, artificial sweeteners, alcohol abuse, and sitting in order from least to most dangerous.  Watch Daily Shot to see what he said!
