Can Sedentary lifestyle kill a person?

Physical inactivity may be considered one of the greatest poisons for humans, but could this problem kill?

In the early twentieth century life was very different from what we live today, much of the technology that we consider basic today was still being developed and the work was concentrated in large factories and industries.

Therefore, sedentary lifestyle until the early 1940s was not yet considered a problem, as only a small portion of the population was sedentary.

This scenario began to change when technology became more and more part of the daily life of human beings, both at work and at home, thus encouraging the growth of physical inactivity.

If at first our foraging hunted, fished or went on long journeys, today we live in a society where people have easy access to everything without much effort and this fact can unfortunately be detrimental to our health.

The fact is that the human body that was designed over millions of years to reach what it is today is not prepared to live a sedentary life.

Today we can say that physical inactivity kills.

Check out the list of the main problems that a sedentary lifestyle can cause:

  • Cardiovascular diseases
