One thing many drivers who spend many hours on the road each day might not be thinking about is the possibility of getting blood clots. the truth is that when you spend plenty of time on the road each day you are at an increased risk of developing the condition. To be honest, being a driver is definitely not the healthiest job, but I guess very often we cannot really be picky about the type of jobs we have. What we can do instead is to minimize the risk of developing a blood clot.
I’ve read somewhere the women are more prone to having blood clots than men are. For this reason, female drivers should be even more careful and alerted when it comes to this. A lot can contribute to a blood clot in the female body: multiple pregnancies that put a tool on the female body, contraceptive pills, and finally hours and hours spent on the road driving your kids to school, supermarket etc. If it wasn’t enough, most of us have office jobs that do not require us to move that much, which only worsens the situations and in many cases is the culprit number one when it comes to blood clots.
