Sitting down makes you age by 8 YEARS

Women who spend too much time sitting down speed up the ageing process, experts have found.
Sitting for more than ten hours a day gives women a 'biological age' up to eight years older than it should be, according to a major study.
The researchers, who tracked the movements of 1,481 women over the age of 64, found a strong link between a sedentary lifestyle and the premature ageing of cells in the body.
This process is known to increase the risk of cancer, diabetes and heart disease.
Just half an hour of moderate exercise - such as brisk walking, gardening or cycling - is enough to undo the damage of a day sat down.
