25 July, 2016 Linda Friedland Executive HealthOriginally posted on NutriLiving.com Sitting is the most underrated health threat of our time. It has been unmasked as a major risk factor for early death and chronic disease. Some have called sitting, the new smoking. It’s really more like sun exposure, in that a short amount may be good for you, but too much is deadly. “But wait,” you protest, “I may sit all day at work, but I exercise three times a week.” The bad news is that exercise is not an antidote for sitting; it doesn’t negate the risk.

20 January, 2015 Dr. Linda Friedland Executive HealthThe alarm jolts me out of a deep sleep. I look over at my blackberry. Its 6am and I quickly scroll through any text messages, bbm’s and emails that may have come through during the night from other time zones. I then feel compelled to delete the junk mail.
