Researcher walks at work with computer/treadmill

In the discussion of Solar Swadeshi we talked about generating electricity from our treadmills. Today we learn that it is also really good for our health. Dr,. James Levine, who just can't stop moving, has turned his treadmill into a desk and walks at a 1 mph pace while he works at his computer. "We're talking more than 50 pounds of weight loss a year, if I were to keep my diet the same," he said.

De. Levine's point is simple: we are designed to move, not to sit. Thats why people who live in cities are thinner than those who live in suburbs- they walk rather than drive. Now, If we can get him to power his computer from a generator connected to the treadmill we will really have something.
