It's one of the biggest health dangers since smoking…and you're probably doing it RIGHT NOW. Are you sitting down? Because that’s it! (No really, that’s the health danger. Sitting.) If you sit for more than four hours a day, your heart disease risk goes up 60 percent, according to a study from University College London.
Ali, who enjoys sitting as much as the next person, didn’t want to believe the hype. So she asked AJ Jacobs, author of Drop Dead Healthy: One Man’s Humble Quest for Bodily Perfection, if there were any truth in the warnings.
Sadly, according to him, “If you sit all day, it’s bad for your weight, metabolism, and blood sugar level.”
But with so many other health threats out there, a person’s got to prioritize. So Ali asked AJ to rank the hazards of smoking, motorcycles, artificial sweeteners, alcohol abuse, and sitting in order from least to most dangerous. Watch Daily Shot to see what he said!

- Daily Shot | Daily Shot – Tue, Mar 12, 2013 1:01 PM EDTHow many times has a friend handed you her phone and asked, “What do you think he means in this text message?” As women, we spend more time than we’d like trying to figure out what men are actually trying to say. That’s why Ali invited comedian Mike Falzone, author of Never Stop Shutting Up: A Book of Advice and Other Things You Didn't Ask For, to do some translating for us. For example, did you ever get one like this? "Hey, sorry I haven't been able to email you back, things have been really crazy at work." Mike decodes that as: "You're not interesting enough to keep up a text conversation with me." Watch the full episode for more tough love.

Robert Suchan, 44, is the top selling Tupperware salesperson in all of North America. Behind this successful salesman…is a closet full of women’s clothes. The former social worker started selling Tupperware part-time in 2007, but before he left the house, he’d transform himself into Aunt Barbara, a 6’5” Long Island housewife with “a signature spitcurl hairdo.”
Aunt Barbara became so popular that Suchan left his day job in November 2009 to sell Tupperware full time. The poly-blend-clad dynamo now moves about $265,000 worth of product a year, earning a comfortable six-figure salary. “I’ve doubled my income and my vacation time,” the sales diva estimates. Even though she hits 5-7 Tupperware parties a week, and takes about 10,000 orders a year, she told Daily Shot’s Ali Wentworth that her life was, “less stress, more dress.”
