How to live longer: One exercise that could add years to your life expectancy

A study finds that people do not need to be constantly exercising to reduce damage, instead suggesting that if we change the way in which we sit, we could live healthier lives.

The researchers followed 28 Hadza people between the ages of 18 and 61, who wore activity trackers for around a week.
