Standing desks coming to the White House

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON, D.C. (NBC) -
President Obama will likely be standing more after the federal government requests hundreds of thousands of dollars to buy standing desks.
The White House is planning to allocate $700,000 to the work-space sitting alternative, according to reports.
That money designated for new desks would be spread out over 5 years. 
Research suggests that sitting too much increases the risk for obesity, heart disease, and early death.
