...and another "sitting will kill you study"

The whole paper is here

It is all about general activity levels rather than vigorous activity....

The study found that the time spent sedentary, as opposed to the vigor of physical activity, was significantly and negatively correlated with a number of metabolic risk factors.

Reports here and here

Think I better walk to work today.  Nice views to come anyway!

It's been so heavily on my mind lately....

It's the continues slower paced activity that really makes us strong and generally feel good.

sitting sucks!

I for example hgave to sit. Studying heavy material isn't very comfortable, if you need to read everything several times, underline/write down stuff and study for (8+) hours a day. It may work for some routine stuff.
So I go for those 50/10 chunks + daily walking. I think standing desk is just a trend that will fade away.
