A Canadian hospital conducted a study of efficiency between stairs and elevators.
Stairs won hands down.
Four doctors, aged 26 to 67, were measured taking the stairs in the six story Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon, Sasketchewan.
On average, the stairs took 13 seconds to travel one floor versus 37 seconds for an elevator.
The doctors were able to cut 15 minutes from their work day as a whole.
Sedentary workers are encouraged to take the stairs. If a worker is in a small office building, the stairs are the way to go.
However, this would be harder so a worker in a high rise office.
While the health benefits of stairs haven't been researched, doing light activity throughout the day decreases fat, blood pressure and waist size.
It is still recommended that people find alternative methods to exercise as well.

Like Rocky, but A LOT hotter!
Victoria's Secret Model Alessandra Ambrosio started off her Thursday with a workout on the Santa Monica steps in El Lay.
The unique workout consists of climbing 180 steep, wooden steps which amount to the equivalent of climbing a 5-story building!
The steps have become a wildly popular workout destination, as it is said 1,500 people climb them on any given weekend.

It seems Beyonce and Jay-Z didn’t have such a great time last night at the 2011 Met Gala.
First there was Beyonce’s custom Emilio Pucci dress which many were disappointed by and was so tight she needed help going up the stairs.
Then she got booed by the paparazzi!
Apparently, Beyo couldn’t take the time to pose for the paps for more than a few seconds.
The Cut Tweeted yesterday during the event:
OMG Beyonce and Jay-Z are being BOOED at the #MetGala for not posing for pictures! Yes, boo!
Beyonce's Pucci dress was so tight she could barely walk up the stairs as she failed to stop for the photographers.
After the photogs loudly booed Beyonce for not posing, Solange arrived and they shouted, "Don't shoot her. She can tell her sister."
Ouch! Poor, Solange!
Do you think the booing was necessary? Should Beyonce and Jay-Z have posed a bit longer for the paps?
