 Employers share responsibility for keeping workers fitAccording to The Los Angeles Times between the sheet-cake birthday parties and hours-long, cookie-fueled management meetings, office work has a way of undermining all our plans to live healthfully. Americans spend nearly nine hours at work each day — and our sedentary jobs wreak havoc on our bodies.

Three-quarters of adults get little or no activity daily, according to Dr. James Levine, an endocrinologist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. Two-thirds of Americans are overweight, and obesity accounts for 63 million physician office visits each year. Even for active people, sitting all day increases the risk of heart disease and diabetes.

We have all heard about the tips to stay active at work. These include running at your desk and even bringing a treadmill to work. The reality is most people cannot put this into practice. Dr. O’Toole explains to those patients who are in great shape that their bodies are still subject to genetics. This means that if genetically the women in your family have small breasts then a breast augmentation is the best alternative for increasing your breast size. The same applies to men who may have a family history of gynecomastia. Diet and exercise will not reduce male breast tissue so the best alternative is gynecomastia surgery. Plastic surgery in many cases is the best alternative for patients to treat the concerns that they have.
