Wired Magazine: “Sitting is the New Smoking”

Corporate director and speaker Nilofer Merchant contends that “sitting has become the smoking of our generation,” in her speech at the TED Conference in Long Beach, California this week, according to Wired magazine.

“Sitting is so incredibly prevalent we don’t even question it. It doesn’t even occur to us that it’s not ok.”

It’s great to see more publicity for the standing desk movement. We carry a number of standing and adjustable height desks at MCergo including WorkRite, Idea at Work, Steelcase, Humanscale and Symmetry.
