Sitting is Killing You- Get up and Move!

Of course, I adore all my daily readers, but, remember don't sit too long, not even here :)

  1. Serious mixing up of cause and effect in all "statistical" data in these slides. Most are only correlations from epidemiology which is by essence not appropriate to tell in what direction the causality arrow goes.
    And the list of links at the bottom points to the usual suspects in gouvernment and mainstream whose completely wrong headed advice brought the obesity epidemic in the first place.

    1. Hey gallier!

      So, you don't think we need to sit less and move more?
      Or just a beef with the stats?
      Because between you and I , I think our bodies were made for motion

    2. Yes, our bodies were made for motion but, as I said, it's far from clear cut to think that lack of motion is the cause of these problems. It is exactly as plausible, from a pure technical pov that it's the bad shape of the people that make them sit more.
      Here, read that link from Peter Attia, he explains it in much more detail than I could ever:

      Here also a little older entry from Gary Taubes

      They do not delve specifically to sitting, but your slides present the same (non) arguments and fallacies of the conventional exercice/obesity viewpoint.

      Good point gallier!

      I should have clarified that our sedentary ways are not the only contributing factor to our unhealthiness- certainly the many chemicals we are exposed to don''t help
      the garbage food etc- it's certainly a multi pronged problem
      thanks for the links as always Gallier,
