Survey Reveals Most Americans Planning Vacations Within the U.S.; Tummy Troubles Top Travel Health Woes
Date:5/15/2008

SAN BRUNO, Calif., May 15 /PRNewswire/ -- As we approach the summer when many of us are planning vacations, a recent travel health survey conducted by Harris Interactive(R) for Florastor(R), the world's top-selling probiotic, found that the majority of U.S. adults -- 78 percent -- plan vacations within the U.S., while just 15 percent say they usually plan to vacation abroad.

Five percent say they usually experience intestinal upset when traveling to a new environment and the same percentage say that while they themselves would travel somewhere known for travel-related illnesses, they would not take their children with them.

The most common ailment experienced by travelers who have ever been affected by a travel-related illness is traveler's diarrhea (TD), with 63 percent reporting a bout with this unsettling condition.
