Project Effects of lifestyle intervention on sleep and cardiovascular health among male obese long-distance drivers begins
Falling asleep or otherwise being fatigued is an important factor in traffic accidents involving commercial vehicles. Sleep-related disturbances and daytime fatigue may be partly related to obesity, which is common among truck drivers. Obesity and sleep-related disturbances are also associated with little physical activity during leisure and poor dietary habits. Finally, sleep dept, obesity, physical inactivity and poor diet are independent risk factors for cardiovascular diseases, including the metabolic syndrome (MeS).
