A new study by Sweden’s Umeå University reveals that workers with long commutes of over 30 miles die younger than those who live closer to their work. Researcher Erika Sandow and the Daily Mail report: ''Journeys over 30 miles cause higher blood pressure, stress and heart disease. The stress of commuting can lead to workers dying earlier than their more relaxed colleagues. Commuters also take more sick leave and gain more weight over their working lives. Women who traveled for longer grew more likely to face an earlier death as the commute lengthened. But this was only true for women who had a low income or low education.''
