In the Gothenburg Primary Prevention Study the incidence of coronary heart disease (CHD) in 103 bus and tram drivers was compared with that of 6596 men in other occupation groups.
Bus and tram drivers had an incidence of CHD of 18.4% compared with 6.4% among the other men in the study.
The only other group with an increase in risk of similar magnitude were taxi drivers.
No significant differences were noted as to smoking habits, serum cholesterol or blood pressure between bus and tram drivers and the other men.
The bus and tram drivers tended to be more physically active during leisure time, but had a significantly higher body mass index than other men.
