Get moving! That's what doctors will tell you, but getting up and standing, instead of sitting, can do more than help you stay fit or lose weight.
If you have a desk job, chances are you are sitting your day away, maybe as much as 55% of it! So take a stand for your health!
Doctors are finding that standing can decrease your chances of developing some cancers, diabetes, even obesity. Scientists believe that a lipo-protein that converts bad cholesterol into good, diminishes by 95
when you sit too long. They say that factor alone, can increase the risk of heart disease by 30%.
