You should stand up because of this. Sitting on your own keister for too much time too often not merely increases your threat of obesity, coronary attack, diabetes and even cancer — in addition, it wreaks havoc on your own liver.
A recently available study shows that remaining seated for extended stretches of time — at your desk, before the boob tube, on a plane, a train or anywhere — puts you at considerable risk for liver disease. Specifically, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), that no standard treatment currently exists. We don’t just like the sound of it either.
