13Why sitting at a 90° angle is bad?

According to studies, sitting at a 90° angle is bad because it puts too much pressure on our spine. When we sit at a 90° angle, our spine is straight in line. This means that all the gravitational force being applied on our spine is just at one point, our lower back. Scientists say that the best angle to sit is at a 135° angle which allows the gravitational forces to affect our spine equally.
