In recent years, the standing desk has become a hot topic.
The reason why the standing desk is so much talked about is that it has been scientifically proven that sitting alone shortens life.
One of the most famous research results is this infographic.Sitting Down is Killing You [infographic]
In the first place, the human body has not evolved to keep sitting.
Nevertheless, many modern people sit longer than sleep time. This is the cause of the problem.
If you sit for more than 6 hours a day, it is said that:
- 40% increase in mortality
- Become obese
- The number of good cholesterol falls
- Increased risk of diabetes
This is a very scary warning.
Also, according to the paper from which the infographic I introduced earlier, no matter how healthy you eat or exercise, just sitting down will ruin all your efforts.Sitting time and mortality from allcauses, cardiovascular disease, and cancer.
I also use a standing desk after knowing this. Why don't you try using the standing desk?
