Your Health 11-08-12: Heart fat, sitting & exercise

Posted: Updated:

Know someone who brags about having a job that involves hours of sitting? Well, this is news they really need to know.

A new study suggest that sitting a lot can cause a build up of unhealthy fat around the heart.

Research show that the fat stayed in place even when people put in regular exercise.

Cardiologists at the University of California, San Diego say, "Even if you run every day, but then you sit for eight hours a day, the sitting is still doing something bad for your health."

The findings were presented this week's at the annual meeting of the American Heart Association in Los Angeles.
