And mrG (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/7116720.stm)

Men in routine jobs, such as bus drivers and refuse collectors, are more likely to die early figures show.

Professionals, such as lawyers and architects, also had low early deaths rates

Doesn't "low early death rates" mean less of them die young, ie. not goodbye mrG? (sadly)

A classic case of reading what I wanted it to say instead of what was really there :(

Experts said these workers were least likely to die in accidents, violent attacks and from suicide

Yeah, apparently the average life expectancy of a retired bus driver is something like 1 year after retirement. :eek:

Luckily I'm hoping to go to Uni next year and study Physiotherapy. :beer:
