Overwork and stroke !!!
Workers who work more than 10 hours a day can have a higher risk of stroke, research shows. A team of researchers from the French National Institutes of Health (INSERM) and a doctor at the Paris Hospital Emergency Medicine Department, Alexis Descatata, conducted a survey of 143,529 men and women, aged 18 to 69, According to a report by HealthDay News and Science Daily, the results of a study on the relationship between the incidence of the disease were revealed. Part-time workers were excluded from the study.
Of those, 1,224 had stroke during the study period. Overall, people who work more than 10 hours a day for more than 50 days per year (29 percent: 42,542) are 29 percent more likely to have a stroke. People who worked more than 10 hours a day for more than 50 days per year for 10 years (10%: 14,481) had a 45% higher stroke risk. This phenomenon was similar between men and women, and was remarkable in the age group below 50 years.
This suggests that relatively younger workers may have more negative effects on cardiovascular disease than overweight and overweight, which are common in older age groups, stresses, long working hours, and irregular working hours did. Dr. Greg Fonaro, director of the Center for Myocardial Infarction, University of California, Los Angeles, California, USA, said the long-time worker had less physical activity, more time to sit and stress, and lack of sleep. The study was published in the July issue of the American Heart Association (AHA) journal Stroke.
