The survey found that  seating is associated with a 24 percent higher risk of developing colon cancer, and 32 percent with cancer of the endometrium and 21 percent higher risk for  lung cancer. When researchers examined the habits of sitting, found that watching television was associated with the occurrence of colon cancer and endometrial cancer. For every two hours that respondents  spent  sitting, the risk of colon cancer increased by 8, and the risk of matrix cancer by 10 percent .
