Spending a lot of time at your desk may be even worse for your health than you think. A new study suggests it may increase your risk of colon cancer.

The study looked at people who had previous surgery to remove polyps in the colon, a known cancer risk. Men who spent the most time being sedentary had a 45-percent greater chance of having their polyps return.The finding held true even for men who exercised regularly.
