A survey on 47,000 civil servants in Whitehall, showed that civil servants who earn promotions to higher job levels have 20 percent lower risk of developing heart disease than those who do not have a career change. The study lasted for 15 years, from 1985 to 1999.
The study observed the prevalence of heart disease and a class of employees who make the civil service. These findings show heart disease is less common in people who were initially healthy and has a special background.
Other studies also found that Oscar winners live longer, the Nobel Prize nominations has better longevity as well as baseball players who reach the Hall of Fame who live longer than those who failed.
The study, conducted by Sir Michael Marmot, professor of epidemiology at University College London, and Michael Anderson of the University of California, Berkeley, is published in the Economic Journal.
Sir Michael said the survey showed that “favorable shocks can positively affect health”.
He added that for individuals, capable of achieving a higher socioeconomic position are good for health. “Promotion is one of the mechanisms of upward social mobility. Upward social mobility is good for health,” he said, according to the Daily Mail.
