Here’s an interesting from FOX News,

You probably have adopted certain behaviors to help become healthier, but you might also be doing things to hurt your health without even being aware of it. A recent study found that sitting with your legs crossed at the knee can bump up systolic blood pressure by nearly seven-percent and diastolic by two-percent. One physician says, “Frequent crossing of the legs also puts stress on the hip joints and can cause pooling of blood in the legs when the veins are compressed.” He says that condition could lead to inflammation of the veins in the lower legs and potentially even lead to a blood clot. To avoid having issues the experts say you should avoid crossing your legs for longer than ten to 15 minutes and to get up and walk around every half hour or so. (Fox)
