Sub:- Why prolong sitting causes deadly diseases?
Again, I am surprise to see an article titled as “Sitting for long may up cancer risk in women” appeared in ‘The Times of India’ dated 15-7-2015 that they have analyzed and being stated “Spending more leisure time sitting is associated with a higher risk of multiple myeloma, breast cancer and ovarian cancer in women, a new Large-scale study led by an Indian-origin scientist has found. The study, however, found no association between sitting time and cancer risk in men. While extensive research links physical activity to cancer prevention few studies have examined the link between sitting time and the risk of specific cancer.
For the study, researchers led by Alpa Patel from American Cancer Society, compared leisure time sitting to cancer risk among over 146,000 men and women (69,260 men and 77,462 women) who were cancer –free and enrolled in the American Cancer Society Cancer prevention Study II Nutrition Cohort. Between 1992 and 2009, 18,555 men and 12,236 women were diagnosed with cancer.
With regard to this, I would like to say something more ‘why cancer occurs in some people’. Basically people are not giving importance for their brain invariantly brain is being put to hardship due to lack of oxygen supply.
While sitting on the chair as well as on the sofa you are bound to rest for a longer time is the cause for such deadly diseases. It is purely because the blood is not flowing freely for the head region is the cause for all types of cancer and other deadly diseases like kidney failure, coronary artery disease, backache and diabetes and so on. But people who sits perpendicular to the floor they stretch their legs now and then and sometimes they fold their legs in different angles and while getting up also the posture of their bowing head goes below the heart level. This way it eases the heart to pump more blood for the head region. Further, to raise the body upright they apply pressure on the two hands with strength of the two legs they are able to stand. From sitting posture to standing posture it activates all the brain cells to the utmost level that avoids most of the disease in the human. But this kind of stimulation is not found for those who leisurely sit on the chair as well as on the sofa lead to all kinds of diseases.
Why this is happening for people who sit on the chair?
When you are sitting on the chair your back body takes full advantage of resting on the back portion of the chair. Since, prolong sitting your spinal cord unknowingly undergoes this physiological stress. To compensate this, the brain automatically send more blood to ease the spine in the process it adds more weight in the pouch area (increasing the Body Mass Index) thus lessening the blood flow for the head region. This is because spinal cord suffers with the added weight in the stomach in supporting the body weight which is caused by leisurely sitting on the chair. In order to compensate this it releases cortisol and epinephrine hormones that lead to all kinds of diseases. For more details refer my blog website titled as “Global Brain Drain on Doctors’ Health” also refer the report in the Blog titled as “How the prehistoric human evolution had taken place on Earth- Part II” dated 3-12-2014 tells why this pre-historic humans were strong and healthy than the Modern Man’s brain.
Let this beauty speaks itself in life.
