Habits That Are As Bad For You As Smoking


You don't smoke and you live a generally healthy life, but that doesn't mean you're in the clear. More and more studies are showing that other unhealthy habits are just as much cause for concern. These six habits either expose you to the same contaminants in cigarette smoke or lead to cancer rates equivalent to those caused by smoking. Fortunately, they're easy to fix with a few modifications to your daily routine.

1. Sitting All Day

Even if you exercise regularly, habitually sitting for prolonged periods, whether at a desk or in a car, is being increasingly linked to a variety of health problems. According to Alberta Health Services-Cancer Care in Canada, inactivity is linked to nearly 160,000 cases of breast, colon, prostate, and lung cancer every year, about two-thirds as many cancer cases caused by smoking.

Make it right: Take breaks at work, and even make (or buy) a standing workstation so you're less apt to sit all day. At home, resist the temptation to veg out in front of the TV. Go for a short walk around the block to relax, spend a few minutes cleaning, or schedule a gym date with your significant other.
