“When you think about it, moving shouldn’t make us sick. We move around all the time," Burnett told National Public Radio's Fresh Air.
“We’re a very mobile species. So … why would moving suddenly make us want to throw up?
“When we’re in a vehicle like a car or a train, or a ship especially, you’re not actually physically moving.
“Your body is still. You’re sat down. You’ve got no signals from the muscles saying we are moving right now — your muscles are saying we are stationary.”
“As soon as the brain gets confused by anything like that, it says, ‘Oh, I don’t know what to do, so just be sick, just in case’.
“We get motion sickness because the brain’s constantly worried about being poisoned.”
So for now, all you've got is motion sickness medicine.
