We all have our problems at work, perhaps you are not paid enough or you work very long hours, now it appears that your office could actually be killing you. According to an article in The Daily Mail there are many factors in every office that can damage your health. Sitting at your desk for long hours can put you at risk of deep vein thrombosis whilst air conditioning in the office can lead to dehydration, as well as making you more prone to viruses. In addition your chair can cause back pain and your computer screen can cause eyestrain, headaches and problems with vision. Even your computer keyboard can make you ill as it can harbour more germs than the average toilet seat. You may also think your phone is clean but it is actually a prime breeding ground for bacteria. So its official work really is bad for us.
