All Apple Park employees getting standing desks because ‘sitting is the new cancer’

Employees at Apple's new doughnut-shaped headquarters are being issued with standing desks.

In an interview with Bloomberg, Cook said the health benefits of standing desks are overwhelming and he wanted to make sure all his employees had one.

Speaking of closed doors, pretty much the only other thing we know about its stunning new "spaceship" campus is that some of its workers, perhaps while taking a break from sitting or standing, have been walking into all-glass doors and walls.

The news comes following David Rubenstein's interview with Apple CEO Tim Cook which was posted to the internet yesterday.

Late past year, Apple unveiled its highly anticipated new campus, the Apple Park. "If you can stand for a while, then sit, and so on and so forth, it's much better for your lifestyle", Cook added.

Race 3 actor Salman Khan greets fans on Eid
The distributors released Race 3 in 4200 screens in the domestic market to cater to massive demand and cash in on Sallu mania. Shah Rukh is busy celebrating Eid with people in Orlando where he is now shooting for his upcoming Anand L Rai film "Zero".

Many workplaces are embracing this new trend of fitness initiatives in the office to allow its employees to keep health risks in check: Treadmills instead of desks, gyms in the office, cycling within the huge campus, healthy lunch variants and so on.

Glatter said he recommends that people with desk jobs practice good posture and get up at least five to six times every hour. They will be able to save themselves from diseases which people get due to sitting continuously. Calories burn due to standing and also the waist gets relief. Ten minutes before the hour, it will remind you to move.

He then encouraged the billionaire financier to stand with him - just like a prominent feature on the Apple Watch. The move might seem a bit extreme, as one goes straight from sitting on a chair from Vitra for eight hours to standing the entire day. With shuttle bus service, there are more trees in the office, more greenery, fruit trees and more trees on the way out of the office.

The offices themselves are designed with employees in mind too.
