IMHO: This is the most important health warning I've even read !!!

Please forward to colleagues / friends / family / etc. and post copies on all appropriate bulletin boards !!!


"We know sitting too much is bad, and most of us intuitively feel a little guilty after a long TV binge.

Many things, say four experts, who detailed a chain of problems from head to toe."
