Work-Related Stress Can Be Deadly (Pt. 3,127)
A study from the University College London last week provided what Reuters describes as “the strongest evidence yet of how on-the-job stress raises the risk of heart disease by disrupting the body’s internal systems.”

While previous studies have also suggested stress is linked to cardiovascular problems, the new research — from a 12-year study involving more than 10,000 British civil servants — sheds light on the specific changes to the nervous system and the body’s hormone levels that cause the increased risk.

Employees with heavy workloads and little control over decisions that affect their professional lives were found to be 68 percent more likely to suffer from heart disease than those who had easier jobs. Stressed workers under the age 50 are two-thirds more likely to suffer from heart disease, according to the new study.

The Register reports of the findings:

Happiness levels tended to peak at around 20, they found, before steadily dipping as people reached their mid-40s. They then started creeping back up again, with people generally climbing out of the hole in their 50s.

The miserable slump applies across geographies and cultures, according to the researchers, who observed the same pattern across one million people in the United Kingdom and across 71 other countries.
