Do you find your job to be mundane and boring, carrying out the same tasks day in and day out? Do you wish you could sail the seas, feel the adventure, the thrill in your veins? Be careful what you wish for and be grateful that your 9-to-5 desk job is not on this list.
Number 10 on this unhealthy job list are cab drivers. Read safety aside, cab drivers get regularly assaulted by some of their tougher customers.
Number 9 on this list are people who make and repair wooden things. Strange, isn’t it? Imagine slipping off a ladder or falling from the second floor. Working as a roofer is really a tough job. Don’t make us mention the possibility of a heat stroke!
Want to live off the land, growing your own crops and raising animals? Farmers and ranchers are at risk of getting trampled by their own cattle or smashed by the heavy machinery. Yikes!

A lot of kids today would like to work as garbage men but little do they know of the hazards lurking in people’s garbage. Not to mention the risk of getting struck by a passing car.
