Child Obesity Hospital Admissions Quadruple.

A report in The Daily Telegraph on 12.06.2013 has revealed the growing burden that the obesity crisis among children in Britain is placing on the NHS.

Most of the admissions to hospital were to tackle conditions that are made worse by obesity, such as asthma and breathing difficulties during sleep, according to a study of NHS statistics.

It seems crazy to us at iwantastandingdesk.com that we create a habit of sitting all day in our education system.

If we “programmed” our future generations to sit less and stand more the benefits would be incalculable to our society and our Governments health costs….food for thought.
