Almost everything I read indicates that cruisers are healthier than the general population. Do they (cruisers) have any way of proving that?
Do they “just live with it” more than the general population?
I want to try it (cruising) and have been wondering if I will be healthier for it.
It has been said that the cruiser ends up eating a more healthy diet or is that because the type of person that cruises does that anyway?
Is a hard physical life on the water
one that is inherently healthier?
Hard physical lives are all known from the past and we live longer now than at any time in the past while living easier lives.
Modern innovations/inventions have protected modern man from many natural exposures that can shorten ones life. Cruising re-exposes one to many natural phenomena not experienced in the day-to-day existence of a “protected” work place and home. Is one a trade
off of the other resulting in the same “level of health” given the same individual?
To say cruising is more stress free is something I do not necessarily believe to be true. Could it be that the stress is just of a different type, thus having less of an impact on our level of health
Friends are now sick after being visited by children
and grandchildren from out of state. Could it be that if they were cruisers they would pick up illnesses easily as they went from place to place?
Is the type of person that chooses the cruising lifestyle just simply the type of person whom is genetically healthier than the general population?
Up to 3rd hand information I think would be useful. After that I am not really interested…………but this is the internet
