Who hasn’t heard this as a kid or from their friends? People have the deeply rooted misconception that standing up straight is the best posture for your body and health. A whole industry has been created around the idea that there is such a thing as the perfect posture and a myriad of products flooded the market claiming to be the solution to health problems arising from "bad" posture. From inlays, to back braces or smart clothing that would zap you if you adopt a slouched position. Standing up straight is good for a couple of things, your confidence level and your height. But there are no good studies that found any connection between what we assume as bad posture and actual health problems.
