In today's health matters, doctors say people who don't keep active can develop health problems including obesity and Type 2 Diabetes.
Now a new study finds that inactivity, especially in women, can lead to dangerous blood clots in the lungs.
Need another reason to get going? A recent study published in the British medical journal found women who were active had a much lower risk of developing pulmonary embolisms, or blood clots in the lung, than women who were sedentary.
Best thing to do to avoid these clots? Move. Get at least a couple of hours of movement a day. And if you sit at a desk, get up for a few quick walks around the office during the day, instead of sitting for eight hours straight.
