Research is showing that certain occupations make people more predisposed to high cholesterol because they were too busy to maintain adequate nutrition and exercise. For example, taxi drivers had the highest cholesterol level as a group because of their poor eating habits and sedentary job conditions. Taxi drivers were followed by real estate agents, lawyers and teachers in the high cholesterol stakes. The lowest blood cholesterol was found in hairdressers, followed by head-hunters and then builders.
