Some cancers such as colorectal cancer are said to be associated with sitting too much.

I spent most of the day sitting down. While I could remind myself to stand up more regularly, I was wondering what other health risks programmers face and whether there are any studies dealing with the subject.

  • I very much doubt that anyone has studied causes of death in programmers specifically. You might want to edit your question to just ask about sedentary desk jobs.
