Thumbs down for ailment

After reading February’s issue of International Health Journal, Scottish Widows protection marketing director Nick Kirwan learnt of a new illness called BT.

What’s more, he is personally in a very high risk group for it. Blackberry Thumb, similar to RSI, is striking pinstripesuited executives across the Western world.

Kirwan says: “Could be an own-occupation income protection claim? Hhmmm…”

Next time you are in a meeting surreptitiously checking the football scores on your Black-berry, remember that your thumb may be at risk.
