Any opinions about this?


Did you know... I can make up random statistics too? Like...
40% of the people reading this will die from having a computer dropped on their head sometime in the next 50 years...
oh wait, that might be true.. you never know!

On one hand, it should be noticed that saying things like "increases chance of death by 40%" is an EXTREMELY misleading way of presenting statistics to the public. It makes folks think that they have a 40% chance of dying at any given moment (or something of the sort).

That said...immobility is unhealthy. This is becoming more clear with recent research. It sets off a cascade of inflammatory reactions in the body, increases chances of blood clots, and messes with your metabolism. Even after strenuous exercise it is becoming apparent that some kind of somewhat more active recovery is better than sitting or lying down during normally waking times for hours at end.

Right now, research is indicating that just getting up once every half hour to an hour and walking around, doing some light stretches, or just about anything lightly active is better than staying in a fixed position.

Doesn't change the fact that there are real health consequences to sitting and to staring at a computer screen. ( I totally forgot to mention eyesight issues in my much earlier post too!)

Ya, I generally take breaks when I marathon animes, posting on CR, etc. Even a 5-10 min break of doing absolutely nothing (but on the computer) helps.

Eye exercises also help alot. I learned some techniques during my childhood days that takes no more than 5 mins to perform. Anyone can do it
