Wellness Wednesday: Standing Desks, New Opiate Guidelines, and the Health of Sports Fans
New research suggests the standing desk fad isn't delivering the health benefits originally promised. Today we'll discuss alternative strategies to avoid sitting for too long. Also, more than forty Americans die each day from prescription opioid overdoses. This hour we'll discuss how the CDC is looking to lower this number with new guidelines. And, how the health of sports fans is affected by watching their favorite teams play.
