According to a study by Castrol India, 65% truckers and farmers do not indulge in any form of fitness due to a lack of interest and time.
A recent study by Castrol India reveals that while 1 in 3 truckers and farmers admitted of health-related issues, only 11% of them were interested in building a healthier lifestyle and immunity.
The research has been conducted by Castrol India between March-May 2020, by surveying around 2,000 truck drivers and farmers across 20 states in the country. Health issue in this study is defined as lack of sleep, obesity, back pain, physical stress, joint pain, and mental stress.
The study also highlights that more than two-thirds (68%) of the respondents were concerned about the health of their families as well as themselves.
