Why sitting at your desk may make you STUPID
Researchers have discovered those with a sedentary lifestyle have a smaller brain region important in forming memories.
The study, by researchers at the University of California at Los Angeles, adds to a growing list about the dangers of sitting for too long.
An array of evidence has already linked the bad habit to heart disease, diabetes, several forms of cancer and an early death in recent years.
But the new research, derived from 35 participants, suggests sitting for too long could even boost the risk of dementia.
