this analysis were drawn from 184,910 participants in the CPS-II Nutrition Cohort, a study of cancer incidence and mortality begun by the American Cancer Society.The 10-page mailed questionnaire included questions on demographic, reproductive, medical, behavioral, and lifestyle factors.  For this analysis, the researchers excluded subjects with a personal history of cancer, heart attack, stroke, or lung disease.

During the follow-up period, 11,307 men and 7,923 women died.  The researchers found that time spent sitting was associated with all-cause mortality in both men and women, even after adjustment for other factors that could affect mortality.  Women who sat for 6 or more hours per day had a 37% greater risk of death than women who sat less than 3 hours per day.  Men who sat for 6 or more hours per day had an 18% greater risk of death than men who sat less than 3 hours per day.  These results were identical even after adjustment for leisure time physical activity levels.
