Statins Not Nearly As Effective in Preventing Heart Attacks as Walking 10,000 Steps a Day
As reported in the Archives of Internal Medicine, statins have not decreased death rates from initial heart attacks among prescribed patients in the US however according to the American Heart Association a healthy lifestyle coupled with 10,000 steps per day would reduce the rate of initial heart attacks in this country by 90%.
“Each month there are new medical studies illustrating that magical cures that over-ride the need to move throughout the day and eat a healthy diet are ineffective at best and often dangerous to health,” reports Steve Bordley CEO of TrekDesk.com, a treadmill desk manufacturer, “this most recent report calls into question the effectiveness of statins, a multi-billion dollar channel within the drug industry.”
"No one makes any money telling people that their lives are dependent upon walking 10,000 steps a day so naturally it is not promoted but our inactivity and sedentary lifestyles have pushed this nation into an obesity epidemic with grave effects on many fronts, it is time to sound the alarm and initiate programs to combat this challenge.'
According to a study sponsored by the National Institutes of Health American’s top two reasons for not exercising are lack of time and lack of motivation. Treadmill desks remove these barriers and have been shown to be an effective tool allowing employees to achieve the minimum suggested thresholds of 10,000 daily steps 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 TrekDesk treadmill desk has received national attention due to its ability to work with virtually any treadmill and its affordable price.
