Sitting can kill you only if it's too comfortable. ;-)

health¬óregardless of your age, gender or body weight, living an
active lifestyle can improve your quality of life and dramatically
reduce your risk of death and disease. But even if you are meeting
current physical activity guidelines by exercising for one hour per day
(something few Americans manage on a consistent basis), that leaves 15
to 16 hours per day when you are not being active. Does it matter how
you spend those hours, which account for more than 90% of your day? For
example, does it matter whether you spend those 16 hours sitting on your
butt, versus standing or walking at a leisurely pace? Fortunately or
unfortunately, new evidence suggests that it does matter, and in a big
way.
