Traveler's Alert: Business Travel Linked to Obesity and Poor Health

(Science Daily) Road warriors who travel for business two weeks or more a month have higher body mass index, higher rates of obesity and poorer self-rated health than those who travel less often, according to researchers…
Overall, the researchers found that business people who traveled the most (20 or more days a month) have poorer health on a number of measures compared with those who travel between 1 and 6 days a month…
Employees who did not travel at all also scored poorly on health measures…
[Said Andrew G. Rundle, DrPH:] "Should further research substantiate a link between business travel and obesity and other chronic disease health outcomes, there are several possibilities for workplace interventions. Employee education programs and strategies to improve diet and activity while traveling are a simple start."
