Dr Michael Mosley: How standing up more burns the same calories as running 10 marathons


As a nation, many spend as much as “10 hours a day or more on their backsides”, and coupled with an eight hour sleep, this does not leave much room for movement.

“Sadly this is linked to some pretty nasty health outcomes, including an increased risk of heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, and even death from all causes.”

Dr Michael referred to a study in which office workers were asked to stand for an extra three hours a day for a week.
