Sitting linked to a early death!

Like i always tell my family when they push to put my father (Has Multiple Sclerosis with difficulty walking) in a wheelchair. Once you sit and don’t ever stand or walk. You shut down your circuits(nerves). That leads to muscular and bone atrophy as well as circulation problems. I tell my dad to take his time, stand up straight and breath. He walks slowly but he forces the brain to pick up the foot. Once you lose that connection it is all downhill. Here is the interesting study.
