People have been issuing warnings for quite a long time about the dangers of sitting too much. Some of the quotations that I found by digging around in Google Books go back to the 1600s. And there are references to standing desks dating back to the 1700s books. I even picked up a good one from a Benjamin Franklin letter: "my sitting too much at the desk having already almost killed me..."
So what are you waiting for. Untake your seat and head on over to the quotes! www.quotegarden.com/sitting-standing.html
