i sugest you re read the artical especially this
"‘We were very surprised that even the highest level of exercise did not lead to a reduced time spent sitting,’ says study author Professor Marc Hamilton. In fact, regular exercisers may actually make less effort to move outside their designated workout time. Research this year from Illinois State University, US, found that people are about 30 per cent less active overall on days when they exercise versus days they don’t hit the road or the gym. Maybe they think they’ve worked out enough for one day. But experts say most people simply aren’t running, walking or even just standing enough to counteract all the harm that results from sitting for eight or nine – or even 10 – hours aday."
it clearly points to the sitting and exericse having a link. the days i do not exercise, and i am sure many that do, take their rest days, as rest days, which would mean more sitting. this allows the body to repair itself and get ready to exercise again. i am further sure many would point to not resting as the road to injuries and overworking the body. the first part mentions people who do exercise, then the second part of the paragraph goes completely to the other end of the scale and mentions research regarding people who do not exercise at all.
i take your point that sitting is not the main think which will cause health issues, however, this article is pointing to a direct link to each other, and as the point made earlier, how do you account for people who are wheekchair users?
