Is it true that if you commute, you’ll get fat?
According to The Longer Your Commute, The Lower Your Wellbeing:
One of the most startling findings of the study shows a strong correlation between obesity and the length of your commute. Roughly 30% of employees who commute for more than 90 minutes each day have a Body Mass Index that classifies them as obese. Less than 25% of employees with a commute shorter than 10 minutes classify as obese.
With the worsening traffic, can we expect a spike in the number of weight-gaining commuters? Some will blame it on the Christmas season, the ber-ber months. But perhaps we just might be spending more time sitting down, because we’re stuck in traffic.
Argh. Makapag-bike na nga. :-p
