Those who do office work are likely to develop deep vein thrombosis; alarming statistics show that the incidence of this disease is increasing as the number of deaths from this cause.
In Britain, for example, Lifeblood organization recently presented a report showing that 10 people die every day because of this condition.
Almost 75% of people aged 21-30 years who do office work, working 10 hours a day, do not take breaks to stand up from a chair. More and more of these people get up and lunch at work place and these circumstances we doubled the risk of suffering from deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
DVT is manifested by the appearance of blood clots in the leg veins due to stagnation of blood in the veins, due to slower traffic, favored by prolonged stay in the chair.
Of clot formed in leg veins can break off fragments that reach the lungs and cause death.
In the UK, 3,798 people died in 2010 due DVT and the number of victims aged under 40 rose by 40% in 2010 compared to 2007.
Sometimes clots in the deep veins cause symptoms such as swelling of the affected leg, redness and feeling his pain, but most of the cases are asymptomatic DVT what makes a “silent killer” extremely dangerous.
Experts recommend to avoid DVT, movement (including at work, in the form of breaks “the revival”), removing excess weight, quitting smoking and eating without much salt without large amounts of fat.
