Treadmill Desks More Effective in Cancer Prevention for Women than Vitamin C, E and Beta Carotene Supplementation
Date:1/3/2009

New research verifies treadmill desks more effective in cancer prevention than vitamin supplementation.

Phoenix, AZ (Vocus) January 2, 2009 -- Yet another study published online by the Journal of the National Cancer Institute confirmed that vitamin supplementation provided no statistically significant value in cancer prevention among women. This study comes on the heels of numerous studies which all draw the same conclusion: vitamin supplementation among a normally well nourished population has no positive effect on cancer prevention. Daily exercise, such as that provided by treadmill desks however does assist in both prevention and potential mitigation of various forms of cancers in both men and women.

The National Cancer Institute and Harvard Medical School reported in November that Vitamins A thru E were ineffective in cancer prevention as well. These studies are casting a bright spotlight towards the most effective preventative measure available: exercise.

Exercise was touted as the most effective cancer preventative measure by the Harvard study and does not have to be strenuous or relegated to a gym to be effective. Sufficient amounts of daily walking have been shown to prevent colon, prostate and breast cancers as well as diabetes and heart disease.

How much daily walking is enough to invoke these benefits? The Surgeon General suggests a minimum of 10,000 steps per day. The average American gets less than half of that amount of walking during the day due to the sedentary nature of their employment and stresses of daily life.

Treadmill desks have been shown to be an effective tool allowing employees to achieve the minimum suggested thresholds in as little as three hours at the office. Walking at slow speeds without sweating, employees are able to accomplish any task they could perform at a regular desk while enhancing their health and productivity. Weight loss comes along as an added benefit.

Treadmill desks are currently in use by major corporations across America and have been shown to increase productivity, boost mood, assist in weight loss, prevent disease and contribute to the company’s bottom line.

The recent economic downturn has made the cost of treadmill desks (which average between $4500 and $6500) a concern and out of the reach of most small businesses. However a new product known as TrekDesk will be available in March of this year at a fraction of the cost.

TrekDesk attaches to an existing treadmill and allows users the same functionality of more expensive models for only $399. While competing models allow speeds up to 2 mph they do not allow the treadmill deck to be elevated. TrekDesk however allows users to capitalize on the elevation feature of their existing treadmills, increasing the calorie burning capacity by a factor of 2x walking at the same slow speeds. You may currently request a catalogue from TrekDesk online at http://www.trekdesk.com. Sales will be available online in March as well with retail establishments throughout the United States offering availability in the fourth quarter of this year.
