    Great - now you won't be able to sit in bars either.

    stand up desks are going to be a big movement soon.

    also, these computer workstations on treadmills are becoming hot commodities in high-end hotel fitness rooms, as well for high-end home equipment. I know I want one.

    It makes a lot of sense. I know I feel like crap when I sit in the office all day as opposed to running around doing appointments.

    Well, let's be fair. With a face like that, I think anyone would feel sick.

    I know. I never thought I'd have a problem with an office job, but you don't really realize how much more you are up and moving around during the day when you're in school compared to when you're working. It sucks.

    Re: Sitting as dangerous as smoking?

    I can't stand sitting for long periods, then again I don't like to be up a lot either. I bought an exercise ball to sit on instead of a chair at my desk at my apartment.

    I'm going to use this thread to convince my employer to let me have a couch and a laptop instead of my desk.

    Why sit when you can lay down?

    I love the comments on the article that bascially amount to "No one should do medical research because it might lead to a law getting passed".
