The association was independent of exercise activity and other traditional heart disease risk factors.”
  6. 6. Sitting Disease~Effects continued The pancreas is responsible for making insulin. Insulin provides glucose to the cell to produce energy. Idle muscle cells do not uptake insulin resulting in an over production of insulin leading to type 2 diabetes. One study found that only after 1 day of prolong sitting, response to insulin decreased.4
