Your Desk Job Makes You Fat, Sick and Dead [INFOGRAPHIC]

Your Desk Job Makes You Fat, Sick and Dead [INFOGRAPHIC] | Startup Revolution | Scoop.it

Is work killing you?

 

The sedentary lifestyle of an office worker can have a dramatic impact on health. This graphic breaks down the shocking stats.
