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. Seven percent say they typically don't travel at all.

Pain relievers were tops on the list of what to pack (53 percent take them along), while approximately one quarter or more take along allergy medications, multi-vitamins, anti-diarrheals or heartburn/indigestion aids.

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. Next in line was stomach cramping and nausea making up 34 percent each. Headaches were also fairly common, with more than one-quarter (28 percent) reporting this experience. Intestinal pain was also experienced by one-quarter of those who have ever been affected by a travel-related illness.

According to Patricia Raymond, M.D., board-certified gastroenterologist, author and assistant professor at Eastern Virginia Medical School, many people around the world but especially Europeans use probiotics to help with trav
