Previous studies have indicated that urban bus drivers have an increase risk of coronary heart disease.
In the present investigation two separate studies were carried out.
In the first study the mortality from myocardial infarction (MI). as well as from other causes for all male bus drivers in Sweden (9446), was investigated and compared to those of other employed men over a 15-year period.
A 50% increase in mortality from MI was observed among drivers in Stockholm and Göteborg and Bohus counties, the two counties where the two largest citiesin Sweden are situated.
