Jet-setters run risk of health problems

Envy the jet-setters, the suited executives who are forever flying around the globe first-class? Think again: they run the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), radiation exposure, stress and loneliness, a new study has found

Envy the jet-setters, the suited executives who are forever flying around the globe first-class? Think again: they run the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), radiation exposure, stress and loneliness, a new study has found.

Although the lifestyle is glamourized by the media, there is a 'dark side' to the jet-set lifestyle, say researchers from the University of Surrey. Not only does the jet-setter face a range of potential health problems, he or she can also have psychological problems from being apart from family and community. These can have serious and long-term effects that range from the breaking down of family relationships, to changes in genes due to jet-lag and the lack of regular sleep.

"Society needs to recognise that the jet-set lifestyle is not all it's made out to be. By striving to travel far, wide and frequently we are damaging the environment, ourselves and potentially our closest loved ones," said lead author Dr Scott Cohen.
