If you sit 8 to 10 hours in the same position, then you should be alert to serious health consequences. Here are some bad consequences happen if you sit for hours, as reported by Boldsky on Monday (9/24/2012):
People who sit for long at your desk usually complain of back pain or pain in the lower spine as a whole. This condition occurs due to muscle stiffness caused by sitting in the same time.
2. Impaired metabolic function
Several recent studies show that if you sit for long hours, the metabolism in your body system will be disrupted. Disturbed metabolism causes a decrease in the levels of good cholesterol in the body, which in turn can lead to health problems overall.
3. Increased risk of diabetes
Research shows women who sat up to 7 hours a day at higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes. The more time spent sitting in a week, it is likely to show signs of the disease earlier.
4. neck pain
After sitting upright for hours, you also often feel pain in the neck. This happens mainly due to the inflammation of the spinal joints.

Research has proven the long sit, the shorter your age. This is because the body goes into a phase of ''shutdown'' complete. You are also more likely to develop blood fat and cholesterol levels if linger. This condition can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, so there is an increased likelihood of heart attacks and other fatal diseases.
