El nuevo riesgo, de estar sentada mucho tiempo es... ar

Si eres mujer y pasas más de 41 horas a la semana sentada, no sólo podrías reducir tu esperanza de vida, sino que además, puedes tener un mayor riesgo de sufrir una embolia. Eso es lo que se desprende, de un estudio recientemente publicado en la revista British Medical Journal, y citado en el portal de CNN, que asegura que las mujeres con mayor inactividad, se vieron doblemente expuestas a sufrir una embolia pulmonar (enfermedad producida por el bloqueo de la arteria pulmonar), que aquellas que reportaron haber tenido mayor actividad.

No es la primera vez, que un estudio habla sobre los riesgos de permanecer mucho tiempo sentado, hace unos años, según informa el portal Nutrición en la Red, un estudio realizado por el American Journal of Epidemiology, descubrió - tras examinar durante 14 años a más de 100 mil hombres y mujeres entre 50 y 75 años- que las personas que pasaron sentadas más de 6 horas, tenían mayor riesgo de morir por enfermedades cardiovasculares, que las que permanecieron sentadas menos de 3 horas. Y el riesgo aumentaba entre las mujeres, pues reportaron un 40% de probabilidad de padecer este problema, en comparación con un 20% en los hombres.

Get her in water

At the beach wait until she’s been sunbathing for an hour then splash a little cold water and let it trickle down her spine. This will get blood pumping round her body, says Lou Paget, author of How To Be A Great Lover.
