The Australians have reported that people who travel to work by car, are more likely to suffer from obesity than their peers who take public transport.


The experiment showed that the owners of the cars, on average, per year gain two kilos in weight, and those who for their commuting choose bus or bike — no то500 G. "Even if You lead an active lifestyle, daily travel to work by car definitely will involve weight gain," commented the lead author Takemi Sugiyama of the University of Melbourne.
