Travel sickness


Aagh! I think I’m going to be sick!



Have you ever seen a tightrope walker in action? You’re sure they’re going to fall, but they never do. That is because they have perfect balance; they will never fall or feel ill.


When your balance is not quite right, because of the speed you are travelling, or due to bends in the road, or the car suddenly stopping, your body becomes upset, perceiving all this as a series of contradictory signals. The result is travel sickness.


Of course, these effects, caused by motion, do not have the same result on everyone. How you are affected varies from one person to another and according to age: some people suffer from travel sickness as children, but get over it once they become adults.
