Over half of the population suffer from travel sickness, according to the results of a survey carried out by the pharmaceutical company Uriach. As many as 70 per cent of ferry passengers suffer from sea sickness which as many as 55 per cent suffer from car sickness - but only nine per cent suffer from air sickness. The most recommended mode of transport is the train: train sickness is practically non existent according to the survey - although investigators have established that the faster the high speed trains become, the more cases of travel sickness are reported. According to the Traffic department, the best way to prevent car sickness is to sleep well before hand, avoid cigarette smoke, don't read and rest every two hours. When flying or sailing, experts say look for the area which moves the least such as the middle of the boat or between the wings on a plane. When sailing, it is always recommended not to look at the waves or other moving objects.
