Vivien  Suchert - Sitting Is for the Ass


The longer one sits in life, the earlier one dies!

Evolutionarily, humans are meant to walk. What do we do instead? Be it our car, office, or sofa – we are merely moving from one seat to the next. With our sedentary lifestyle, we do ourselves all kinds of harm, from back problems, obesity, and diabetes, to depression, heart disease, and cancer.

In this self-illustrated book, the scientist Vivien Suchert entertainingly explains how we have forgotten how to walk, where sitting traps are lurking, and why doing sport is only half the battle.

•Sitting is more dangerous to health than smoking, as proven by the latest studies

•A very current topic, presented entertainingly and competently

"An amusing, light and scientifically based help to change one's way of life without, however, committing oneself to the next yoke of an idealised body image."
