We all know that flying affects your body - but you may be surprised just how much havoc the journey can cause.
Citybase Apartments has created an infographic which highlights some of the things that happen to your body while you are thousands of feet above sea level in a plane.
The cabin air, cabin air pressure and inactivity are the main culprits when it comes to the changes that your body experiences.
Due to the lack of moisture in the cabin air, flyers can experience dehydration as well as an increased chance of getting sick.
In fact, the infographic notes that you're 100 times more likely to catch a cold on a flight - so you're not being just being paranoid or overreacting when you suspiciously eye the passenger who coughed nearby as you reach for your hand sanitiser.
Air pressure and inactivity are the biggest culprit when it comes to the uncomfortable effects of flights.
The altitude causes the numbness of tastebuds, bloating and constipation. A strange effect is also that the changes in air pressure can cause pockets of gas to get trapped in your teeth (in cavities or fillings).
Meanwhile, due to staying still, fluid can build up in your feet and ankles. A serious consequence of inactivity on a plane is Deep Vein Thrombosis.
Other serious effects include arrhythmia in some people, possible pneumothorax and other complications from clots.
The likeliness of experiencing the effects of flying increases the longer your flight is.
