Check this out you have a choice in life according to one headline on a popular website you can quote.
Sit at your desk and die.
Or stands and looks stupid how about that for choice right it's all about -- researcher at the Mayo Clinic who's done some thing.
Called sitting disease even going so far as to recommend using a standing desk on the job -- that -- detail what -- -- standing next joining us live.
Doctor Mark Siegel a member of the Fox News medical eighteen and a professor of medicine at the NYU -- -- medical center and her appropriately having this conversation.
Sitting down doctor can't really be that serious and if they're really something called sitting disease.
I think he's right about this -- you know this is doctor James Levine at the Mayo Clinic and he's been studying this for years and we've -- been -- and we know thirty minutes of exercise a day cuts down on heart disease cuts down on obesity cuts down on cancer.
Cuts down on stroke.
But the thing is we also know that even if you exercise if you're sedentary if you watch television -- for more than forty hours a week if you don't get up off your Duff you end up with the same lists of diabetes and obesity and heart disease so he's right in that way he invented this treadmill workstation.
Which only goes one mile per hour but in going one mile per hour which is comfortable you burn off a hundred calories an hour which is a thousand calories today.
I could see a lot of workers comp issues on that doctor -- imagine.
I lost productivity because seven trips and falls while trying to type of Paper and walk on the treadmill now you make a good point though he says it's a lot it's a lot better for all of -- -- stand more when we're working in if we don't wanna listen.
So the whole -- -- an issue there's the waistline issue as well he says simply by standing.
You -- three times as many calories as you do sitting I'm sure that sky and sun ever viewers' attention.
And he says -- that you can lose up to fifty pounds a year and during this.
And -- thing is adjustable it doesn't have to be the way you just showed it it actually can be in various positions you can move it around.
And the main point is that you get up and that you walk around or that you stand while you're working it's got the computer terminal there.
I think people could actually get used to this -- people understood what the risks are not doing that it's bad for your back also -- this it for a prolonged periods of time.
-- really -- you got it in in the meantime while we're waiting for that treadmill workstation as Jon Scott and hired is anxiously waiting for.
What should -- jail -- a daily basis.
Get up don't city -- -- be conscious -- it take breaks walk around the office visit other people don't just FaceBook.
Go around -- visited other people talked other people look you just got a new set up there I'm not -- one of those treadmills and yet.
But now I think this is a great invention I think he's Smart.
I think it's coming now went now in the producers tell us to get out the locker ran -- -- -- -- monitor.
We're gonna have to listen to them because they're gonna say it's good for our health I'm.
And a bicycle stationary -- here Alex in class -- big day now that and we got -- -- -- -- -- something here I'm endorsing -- and I'm talking to the producers about it right now I'm afraid doctors say that thank you very much Cheney joined in the corner also has been -- I can -- that hadn't been quite that great.
