ALSWH PLAIN LANGUAGE SUMMARY- Sitting time not associated with heart disease

Publisher: Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health, 2016

Status – CURRENT

In mid-aged women, sitting time does not appear to be associated with the risk of heart disease. These findings are contrary to expectations, given the growing evidence of a relationship between sitting time and heart disease. Research in this area is scarce and additional studies are needed to confirm or refute these findings.
