Bloomberg Business Week (4/29/2010) said “Your office chair is killing you!”

They linked the results of a study on leisure sitting to low back pain, depression, obesity and cholesterol problems and although those facts are true for leisure sitting, they are not the same as sitting at work

Huffington Post (1/18/2013) labled “Sitting is the new smoking,” again linking the known risks of leisure sitting with heart disease, diabetes and cancer to sitting in general.

Those facts are true for leisure sitting, but not sitting at work
