Patrick Timpone

Dr. Joan Vernikos

Former NASA Director of Life Sciences and author of the new book
“Sitting Kills, Moving Heals.”

“Sitting Kills, Moving Heals” is the first popular health book on “sitting disease.” A number of new medical studies have proven that sitting too much shortens lifespan, even in people who exercise regularly. Dr. Vernikos has a cure for sitting disease — gravity. In her pioneering NASA research on the effects of weightlessness on astronauts, Dr. Vernikos discovered that constant movement that challenges the force of gravity is essential to good health. Deprived of gravity, astronauts develop muscle weakness, heart problems, poor balance and coordination and lack of stamina — exactly the same symptoms as sedentary people here on Earth.

      Thank you for sharing my interview again with your viewers. The issue of the dangers of too much sitting without gravity breaks is picking up steam thanks to shows like yours that help spread the word.
