Flight Attendant Health 

An Environmental Health Journal article discusses the Harvard School of Public Health study comparing U.S. F/A's self-reported health with general population health. Here's a quote from its conclusion:

"In summary, the prevalence of certain health conditions in flight attendants is higher than the general population and some of these conditions show an exposure-response relationship with tenure."

"Certain health conditions" include chronic bronchitis, cardiac disease, sleep disorders, fatigue and depression.
