New research suggests office jobs are slowly killing people.
A study in the American Journal of Epidemiology showed people who sat more than six hours a day were likely to die sooner than those who sat less than three hours a day.
Doctors say the lack of movement can put people at risk for heart disease.
They suggest that employees get up and move their bodies during work or a break time, which can be more beneficial than a 45-minute workout at the gym.
The study shows that he strain of work, whether at a desk or not, is more likely to hurt women. Women with high demand jobs and little control are 40-percent more likely to suffer from heart disease.
