Drive to work affects health

People who travel to work by car, train or bus more often suffer from difficulties with health than those who go to work on foot or by bike. Swedish researchers followed the 21st 000 employed respondents, aged between 18 and 65 years, and their results published journal "BMC Public Health."

In the group of persons who have traveled to work by car or public transport saw a greater risk of everyday stress, fatigue, use of sick leave and poorer overall health.

Researchers at the University of Lund added that the additional subjects had an increased risk whose daily journey lasted longer. The study found that the journey to work was associated with higher odds of difficulties in relationships with spouses.
