Reducing sedentary time may lower the risk of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), new findings suggest. 

In a study of 582 men aged 40 years and older, researchers at the HanyangUniversity College of Medicine in Seoul found that men with lower levels of sedentarytime (4.5–7.0 hours per day) had a significantly lower risk of BPH than thosewith a greater sedentary time (more than 7 hours per day), according to a reportin the International Neurourology Journal (2014;18:155-162). 

“Our study showed that reducing sedentary time could have a protective effectand reduce the prevalence of BPH,” the authors concluded.
