Working Overtime Is Associated with Health Risks

Working Overtime Is Associated with Health Risks

Let’s face it, we live in a society where people are working overtime, in many cases, just to make ends meet. But according to a report in the Annals of Internal Medicine, there could be a stiff price to pay for this. Adults who worked 11 hours or longer each day had a 67% higher risk of developing heart disease compared to those who only worked 7 to 8 hours a day. When you examine the study it’s quite clear that there is a price to pay for working extended hours. People working long hours tend to exercise less and they work in an environment that increases the amount of stress in the person’s life.
