It has been said that sitting is the new smoking.

That adds up to 21 hours a day of minimal to no activity. From increased levels of obesity to skeletal and muscular conditions, the health implications of a predominantly sedentary lifestyle are staggering. So, we want to know—how has your desk job affected your health? Let us know by voting in our poll.
