Are business trips bad for your health?

It depends on the time they spend traveling. People who travel for work for two weeks or more each month have higher body mass index (BMI) , suffer more obesity and have poorer health than people who hardly need to travel for professional reasons, according to a study published in the journal Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine .

Specifically, the research data reveal that people who spend 20 days a month traveling have higher blood pressure and higher levels of "bad cholesterol" than the population average.

Also, frequent travel increases the risk of infection.
