 Then the scientists put all the research data that affect the final result (eg age, weight, physical activity, health status, etc.) and saw that those who exercise more than 5 hours / week, and many continue to sit hours, while showing lower mortality rate than those who do not exercise, but again is much more dangerous position than those that move constantly.
