Sitting around just might be making you sick.
A new study finds that extensive sitting increases women's risk of Pulmonary Embolism.
The condition occurs when a substance, usually a blood clot, travels through the bloodstream and lodges in the main artery leading to the lungs.
The most at-risk group women who sit for more than 41 hours a week outside of work.
The least at-risk group sat for less than 10 hours a week.
Still, doctors say the increased risk of p-e from extensive sitting is relatively small.
