The 2018 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans address the strong relationship between sitting time and the risk of all-cause mortality, cardiovascular disease mortality, cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes, and cancers of the colon, endometrium, and lung. They also note its high prevalence in the U.S. population, with U.S. children and adults spending approximately 7.7 hours per day (55% of their waking time) sitting.
