A long commute raises health risks. How long is your commute?Erika Sandow, a social geographer, along with other researchers, has released a paper outlining her discovery that long commutes, defined as being 31 miles or more each way, can lead to an earlier death.The report is based on research conducted by sifting through databases to locate Swedish people 55 and over who traveled both near and far to get to work. She found what she suspected – a correlation between commuting and an early passing. However, she learned mostly women seemed to be affected - notably, women with lower paying jobs or less education. The relationship increased as the miles racked up. Sandow’s team doesn’t at this time have specific explanations for this, but she wonders if it has to do with the reality that women typically have more household responsibilities than men. She feels this could be a factor leading to greater negative stress in their lives. The researcher found in a separate study that couples having one partner commuting great distances are 40 percent more likely to get divorced.
