Mortality - exercise, physical activity, sedentary - 50906
Physical activity (non-sedentary lifestyle) reduces mortality risk. Sedentary time is positively associated with an increased risk for dying (from all-causes, cancer and cardiovascular diseases) and increasing risk for certain forms of cancer (specifically breast, colon, colorectal, endometrial, and epithelial ovarian cancer), cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. Regular exercise has protective effects over the risk of premature death associated with sedentary behaviour (sitting time), but does not completely undo the harm.
