Inside Trucking: Healthy Living for Drivers

Inside Trucking has an article about healthy living for druck drivers. I can only imagine it's pretty hard to be on the road constantly. It would seem that you'd probably hit up a lot more McDonald's or other fast food chains moreso than healthier home cooked meals.

Dr. Martin Moore-Ede found that truck drivers have a 10- to 15-year lower life expectancy than the average American male, who lives on average to age 76. This statistic has served as a life-changing jolt for some drivers.

Read the full article. That is a pretty big difference! I'm also wondering how female truck drivers compare as the study seems to only mention male life expentancy. What are some ways that you try and stay healthy while on the road?
