Lead author Leonie Heron of Queen’s University Belfast said that the research “means that even if you meet the recommended levels of activity (the NHS advises at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity a week), you are still at higher risk of some of these health conditions if you are spending long periods of time sitting down during the day.
