Sitting is killing you!!! That's what the book " Sitting Kills, Moving Heals " would like you to believe. But is it true? As someone who values reading above almost all activities, it struck at my soul when I heard author Joan Vernikos discuss the dangers of sitting on a STEM TALK podcast. Actually, the podcast was about the effect of gravity on human health - but Dr. Vernikos has taken her experience with gravity and extrapolated that to human health here on Earth. The podcast was quite interesting and lead me to get her book on the topic: " Sitting Kills, Moving Heals " I went into this book with very high hopes. Human health is one of my major interests, so I love to find little nuggets that fit into that puzzle. I was hoping to take away 1 or 2 little things that would add up over time. It wasn't news to me that sitting was considered unhealthy. We've all seen the headlines: Sitting is the New Smoking! But was it really as dangerous as smoking.
