A new study from the United Kingdom found that people who take public transportation, bike, or walk to work tend to be thinner than those who get behind the wheel.

Scientists in London examined the body mass index of 15,000 commuters. They found people who travelled by public or active transport had lower BMI scores and less body fat.
