Treadmill desks may help get office workers moving


A growing body of research suggests that sitting for long periods, say an eight- or nine-hour workday, can contribute to health problems, even if you hit the gym before or after… "Sitting is bad for you, no doubt about it," said Ray Squires, program director for the Mayo Clinic's cardiovascular health and rehabilitation center in Rochester, Minn. "The longer you are sedentary, the longer you sit, the greater your chances to develop cardiovascular disease, to die from any cause, to develop markers for diabetes."
