"The combination of prolonged sitting with lack of physical activity was highly prevalent among U.S. cancer survivors, and this sedentary lifestyle was associated with worsened survival," said coauthors Chao Cao and Dr. Lin Yang with Alberta Health Services in Calgary, Canada. "The exact biologic mechanisms are unclear but the negative effects on metabolic and sex hormones, inflammation, and immunity are some of the main hypothesized pathways," they told Reuters Health in a joint email. "Experimental studies have shown that uninterrupted sitt...
