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?
We hope by the time the show is over tonight...... YOU"LL KNOW.

A Detroit man watching a movie while driving his car got into an accident and died.
The man, who wasn’t wearing pants, was watching the movie on his cellphone, said police.
The driver, 58, wasn’t wearing a seat belt and was partially ejected through the sunroof.
A state police spokesman said it’s the strangest incident he ever encountered.
“There’s so much technology out there a lot of people are more paying attention to what they’re doing other than driving their car,” said Lt. Mike Shaw of the Michigan State Police.
The accident occurred Sunday at 3:30 a.m. as the car was traveling south on the Lodge ramp to Interstate 75 in Detroit, said police.
The driver lost control of the 1996 Toyota and it rolled over. No other vehicles were involved in the wreck.
He was pronounced dead at the scene. The police are continuing to investigate.
Thursday 5-21-15 6PM ET Tonight we are going to combine 2 of the hottest issues in Trucking; Truck Driver Health and Trucker Wages.

Our guest will be Pat Hockaday from TruckersUnited.org. Mr Hockaday is known for JoJo's Paper, an all-out crusade to change the way drivers are paid.
