Saturday 10-3-15 6pm ET-
Join us with our guest and co-host, Tom Kyrk of Road Tested Living as we discuss the hottest topics on AskTheTrucker “Live’ Truck Driver Health Open Forum.
Professional drivers are more aware of the dangers of their compromised food supply, the increase in illnesses such as diagnosed diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and increased autoimmune disease.
Because of awareness, truckers are now more concerned and actively involved by taking proactive measures to improve their health.
You know who else has announced they are going to become proactively involved with driver health? The FMCSA. On September 21st and 22nd FMCSA's Motor Carrier Safety Advisory Council ( MCSAC) and the Medical Review Board (MRB) opened up discussion regarding the Health and Wellness of the professional Driver.
Tonight we will discuss this newly announced involved by the FMCSA and determine if becoming involved with truck driver health and wellness is for the earnest regard of the professional driver? Or.... is it to become just one more way the government will become even more involved with driver lives.
We’ll also be discussing , unsafe cookware to avoid in your truck, what kind of diet programs to stay away from, and the new craze on “salts” is there any really any differences?

"Truck Driver Health- The "best" health program for you is.... "
Thursday 6PM ET 347-826-917
As move forward with Driver Health discussions we realize more and more that there is no "one size fits all health program" . If you believe there is, you're setting yourself up for failure.
We can take in all the information we want, but the bottom line is we need to apply knowledge to our lives, and what works for John, may not work for Mary, and yet John and Mary are BOTH improving their health. How could that be?
Although than most people concerned about health will agree to avoid: processed foods, trans fats, GMO's, sugar, soda ,artificial ingredients and chemicals, pesticides, herbicides..... AND to increase organic food, water consumption, exercise,.... There still needs to be that all important consideration of the Person making the change.
So what diet is best? Here's a few choices : Paleo Diet, Vegan Diet, Vegetarian Diet, Raw Diet, Zone Diet, Atkins Diet... and the list goes on.
Join us tonight as Donna Smith of Trucking Social Media and Tom Kyrk of Road Tested Living discuss the absolute BEST health program for YOU... Call us and share how you either have achieved, or are in the process of achieving your goal towards PERSONALIZED optimal health.
Haven't Decided which health program is best for you?

Every day in the United States, 2,300 people are reported missing and professional truckers are no exception. Because of their mobility, truck drivers are much more difficult for law enforcement to locate, even with the GPS technology used within the trucking industry.

Together, they are using the power of social media, currently through FaceBook, to launch this newest tool in assisting law enforcement, family members and the trucking industry as a whole, to help find missing truck drivers and to unite an industry to come together in helping their own.

Professional CMV drivers were earning more money in 1980 than they are today and they have seen truck driver wages fall by 40% during the past 33 years.
With no adjustment for inflation or other such economic factors, and by figuring in total number of hours worked per week, the majority of drivers end up earning an hourly wage that is far below the minimum wage.

Closing song: "Down the Road" by Rob Anthony.
Reports are showing that there is currently a truck driver shortage of 20,000 drivers in the United States, with that figure growing to 114,000 by the year 2014.
What is the real truth behind the truck driver shortage? 72,000 drivers lost their jobs in 2008 alone, yet presently they cannot fill 20,000 positions?
Open discussion on the real facts about the driver shortage myth. Other topics will include problems with the current state of truck driver training and opening the Mexican border.
Government bureaucracy continues to slam the American truck driver and the U. S. trucking industry with on-going regulations and fees. From speed limiters, HOS rule changes, EOBR's, carbon based emission control, the CSA, sleep apnea testings and the NAFTA Mexico agreement, have trucking regulations gone too far? As the FMCSA looks to pick up the tab for EOBR's to be placed on all Mexican trucks, U. S. companies and owner operators are left to fend for themselves. Allen opens up the lines for an open topic forum while asking the question . . . are regulations destroying the American trucker?
