Wonder why? According to CEO Tim Cook, "sitting is the new cancer". Well! The famous multinational company Apple has a solution for it, it has placed standing desk for employees to aid a healthy lifestyle.

Apple CEO said that he forced his employees to work in a standing position, as this improves health and prevents the development of a "new cancer".

During the interview the CEO Cook said that all the employee chairs in the building are slightly uncomfortable with a goal.

"We have a lot of people using the Apple Watch at Apple, and 10 minutes before the hour, suddenly they all get up and move". Cook said that if employees stand for a while when they work, sit down, and go back to standing, it's far better for their health than sitting all day in an office. An unhealthy amount of time spent sitting at our desks, working away on computers, and barely getting any exercise.

Reminding people to stand and move throughout the day has been a passion of Cook's and the company's for quite some time.
