Sitting is Dangerous! - Opening Keynote

New Year's goal: sit less!

"Scientists have found intriguing evidence that one major reason so many people are overweight these days may be as close as the seat of their pants. Literally," reported Lee Dye nearly 10 years ago, for ABC News. "According to the researchers, most of us sit too much."

"In most cases, exercise alone, according to a team of scientists at the University of Missouri, isn't enough to take off those added pounds. The problem, they say, is that all the stuff we've heard the last few years about weight control left one key factor out of the equation. When we sit, the researchers found, the enzymes that are responsible for burning fat just shut down."

Jeff's take: I knew it! I've always felt energetic standing in front of an audience. I even switched to a stand up desk in January 2006. Anthropologically speaking how could it be any other way?
