Working long hours leads to increase in cardiovascular risk

Working 55 hours or more per week is linked to a one-third freater risk of stroke compared to a 35-to-40-hour work week, according to recent research published.

Based on a review of 17 studies covering 528,908 men and women followed for an average of 7.2 years, the increased stroke risk remained once smoking, alcohol consumption and level of physical activity were taken into account.
