While not ‘logical,’ understandable given that health care workers reflect overall trends. What always struck me in my all too frequent hospital visits and stays was the contrast between my doctors, none of whom were obese, and many of the nurses and other workers who were more reflective of the general population. Quote below confirms this:
Dr. Erica Frank from the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada, said there’s lots of data showing doctors are healthier than the general population, on average. But that may not apply to other health care workers, who typically have less medical knowledge and make less money, she added.
