ScientIST: Staying Healthy While Traveling
With gas prices dropping, it seems likely that people will ramp up their holiday travel plans in an effort to reconnect with far-away family and friends (or a tropical island and a Mai Tai). While we are disappointed to see more cars on the road as we move farther and farther away from $4/gallon, December will surely be about planes, trains, and automobiles, hotels and relative's homes, airports and truck stops.
With the help of the Center for Disease Control's Yellow Book for travelers (we heart their website), we've compiled a few Travel Tips to keep you healthy over the coming weeks. For those of you too busy to make it through the entire handbook (Chapter 4 is a doozy) or Skymall is more your thing, we'll highlight a few must-know sections.
