Job stress effects heart

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

New research reveals an unhealthy lifestyle combined with job stress can take its toll on your heart.

A British study of over 15,000 adults found people who felt work-related stress had an increased risk of coronary artery disease.

That risk was even higher when they also had at least two unhealthy behaviors like smoking, excessive drinking, physical inactivity and obesity.

Those with job strain and a healthy lifestyle had about half the rate of coronary heart disease.

This study was led by researchers at University College London and published in 'Canadian Medical Association Journal.'
