In the past, we’ve reported on studies that showed how dangerous too much sitting can be to your health, with links to diabetes, heart disease and dying early.  Well, British researchers have their own recommendations as to how long you should be standing to stay healthy.

They recommended two hours of standing during the work day, and at least two more hours of standing at home – and try not to do it all at once.  Frequent breaks help keep the blood flowing.

Researchers at UConn have found a link between cheating spouses and financial dependence.

For both men and women, the more dependent a person was on their spouse, the more likely they were to cheat, and for men, that effect was especially pronounced.

Men who were completely financially dependent on their spouse cheated 15% of the time in that study.  For women in that situation, the number was just 5%.

The researchers suggested that might be because the man’s masculinity felt extra threatened by not being the main bread winnner.
