A new Lancet study has revealed that men are twice as likely as women to suffer from deep-vein thrombosis (DVT), a potentially deadly blood clot that can develop on long plane trips.

If your level and risk are high, a prescription blood thinner - such as warfarin - should help you touch down safely.
