Stand Less at Work to Decrease Heart Disease

  Sitting at work for prolonged periods has been a known risk factor for increased heart disease. A recent study out of Ontario suggests that occupations associated with prolonged standing increased heart disease two-fold compared to occupations involving primarily seated positions.
  Occupations that combined sitting and standing and walking showed lower risks in in men BUT elevated risks in women.
