Treadmill Desks to the Rescue: Weight Control and Activity Critical in Preventing Heart Failure

Previous studies had shown that overweight individuals who engage in regular exercise have less heart risk than normal weight individuals who are sedentary however this most recent study illustrates the need to both stay active and lose excess pounds.
