The link between sedentary staff and health problems

For centuries, researchers knew there was a link between sedentary staff and health problems. In 1700, for example, an Italian physician, Bernardino Ramazini, noted that tailors who sat at work were not as healthy as deliverymen who walked while they worked (Ramazzini, 1713). Generations later, a British study (Morris & Crawford, 1958) showed that cardiovascular disease was less frequent and less severe among bus conductors and postmen than among bus drivers and telephone operators, who were more likely to do sedentary work.
