Workload not only makes the body tired and stressed, but also have a negative impact on the heart. A recent study describes that job stress can have serious consequences for cardiovascular health. You should know the signs of stress as it could be harmful. It was even known that men with severe stress have high risks of death.
67 percent of women with high-pressure job are at risk of heart attack, and the remaining 38 percent will experience a stroke or hypertension, as reported by My Health News Daily. This risk is greater when compared with women who work freely without pressure.
“Stress that we are talking about here is a stress that exceeds the body’s capacity to manage or adapt right,” said researcher Dr. Michelle Albert, of Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Boston.
The results of this study is reinforced by previous research that found an association between stress at work on important implications for health.
In this study, researchers used data from the Women Health Study, involving more than 22,000 women who works in the field of health in the U.S., over a period of 10 years.
The result of the study showed that although women have a high degree of control to work, they were still be under pressure and this causes the risk of health problems. This is in contrast with previous findings that mentions the control of the work help reduce stress.
Albert insists that high position like managers and executives have high pressure in their works. Pressure that would affect heart health and all organs of the body.Tagged with: Job Stress, job stress heart health, work pressure, work pressure heart health,
