Health: Schoolchildren get into stand-up act
USA Today - 10/12/2015
Early research into sitting too much confirmed that being sedentary is bad for the body. Now, scientists are analyzing the best ways to break up the sitting habit, said Dinesh John, an assistant professor in the Health Sciences Department at Northeastern University in Boston.
It’s not yet be shown how much people should stand or what are the best alternatives to sitting, particularly for children, said John, who collaborates with Ergotron and uses one of their standing desks in his own office.
