A study found that if you spend more than ten years in front of computer then you are more likely to develop bowel cancer. People whose desk jobs demand long hours of continuous work are at two times greater risk of bowel cancer.
According to the University College of London, those people who works 11 hours a day on PC increase their risk of heart diseases to 67%. Cardiologists suggest that amount of time you spend staring at computer screen is directly linked to your heart health. Data from the British Chiropractic Association (BCA) revealed that in a day one third of people who sit for more than 10 hours and half of them don’t take a single break.
Sitting for longer duration without taking breaks adds to waist circumference and increase the level of bad cholesterol. In order to minimise risk of bowel cancer and other heart problems one must not sit for long hours and also not at a stretch. Taking break even for even a minute can help in reducing the heath risk associated with desk jobs, experts suggest.
