Chen Weiyou emphasized that the work pattern of the modern global workforce has already changed, and the demand for physically demanding work has decreased. In particular, the office workers spend more than half of their time in a state of daily “sitting”, including work, transport, leisure and entertainment (following dramas, playing video games), dinner with friends), etc., along with poor work and rest habits such as frequent overtime, uneven diet, and waiting up late, causes health problems in the “gut”.
Sitting for more than 2 hours can increase lung cancer risk by 6%
Chen Weiyou said that according to research, increasing sitting time by 2 hours a day will increase the risk of colon and rectal cancer by 8%, endometrial cancer by 10%, and lung cancer by 6%. The factors that cause the long-term health effects of sitting are:
● Gut health:If the body does not move, the peristalsis of the intestines will slow down, and it is easy to have constipation problems, and the inflammatory substances in the body cannot be metabolized and excreted smoothly, and the accumulation in the intestines can cause cancer in easy.
● Obesity:The body uses less energy, and it is easier to take in calories. For example, watching TV must be accompanied by snacks, and obesity itself is one of the reasons for the high risk of cancer.
● Vitamin D deficiency:Overtime work makes office workers relatively reduce the frequency of sunbathing, and the vitamin D synthesized in the human body will be deficient. Vitamin D has been proven to protect the intestinal tract and reduce the chance of enteritis or bowel cancer.
Chen Weiyou reminded that in the past office workers rarely had the opportunity to get up and move around when they were sitting at their desks. After the baptism and changes in many lifestyles during the epidemic period of working from home, their buttocks were stuck to comfortable chairs even longer. So, whether it’s during the Spring Festival or how busy you are at work, it’s recommended to get up and walk around every hour, and replenish water by hand, which will kill two birds with one stone and help your health. Of course, regular bowel examinations are also indispensable.
