FAA RELEASES STUDY ON AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLERS HEALTH

A five-year medical study of more than 400 male air traffic controllers from the Boston and New York areas has found them to be as healthy as men of similar ages in the general population except for a higher than normal rate of hypertension (high blood pressure).
