Crossing your legs could pose a health risk, according to a medical report released earlier this year.
Sitting with the legs crossed hampers the flow of blood in the legs and could cause problems such as blood clots, back strain, dislocation of spinal discs, and scoliosis, said the M.J. Health Management Group which wrote the report.
The Government, through the N.H.S., is rushing through new legislation which will ensure that all trousers, shorts, pants, jogging bottoms etc., will carry “stitched-in” health warning labels from 1st October, 2010. The campaign will be using high profile celebrities to get the message across to the general public. The first superstar to endorse the program is Sharon Stone.
