Is sitting bad for my health?

I read somewhere that sitting for too long may be harmful to one’s health while on the other hand, walking is very good for one’s health. If this is true, kindly give me more information about this.

It is true that scientists have observed that sitting or lying down for too long increases your risk of chronic health problems, such as heart disease, diabetes and some cancers. Too much sitting can also be bad for your mental health. Luckily, getting up off the couch and going for a walk can put you well on your way to preventing everything from heart disease and diabetes to high blood pressure, depression, memory problems, and more. Being active is not as hard as you think. There are lots of simple ways to include some physical activity in your day.
