The Times has reported on a study published in The Lancet showing that people in England and Wales who travelled to work by train had a 10% reduced rate of death compared with people who drove. They also had a 20% reduced rate of death from cardiovascular disease and a 12% reduced rate of cancer diagnosis. Researchers believe that part of the difference can be explained by trarail commuters walking or cycling to stations. Cyclists formed the healthiest cohort. They were 20% less likely to die early compared with those who drove, 24% less likely to die from cardiovascular disease, and had a 16% reduced rate of death from cancer.
