WORKING MANY HOURS PER WEEK INCREASES STROKE RISK
Lawrenceville, NJ (Dr Simone) – Findings from a meta-analysis study involving 603,838 men and women (24 studies) from the USA, Europe, and Australia show that working 55 or more hours per week increases stroke risk by 33% compared to people who work between 35 and 40 hours per week. For those who work between 49-54 hours, the increase stroke risk is 27%. For those who work between 41-48 hours, the increase stroke risk is 10% but this is not statistically significant. The risk did not depend upon gender or geographical location. There was an association for coronary heart disease but this association was weaker than that for stroke. (Lancet. 2015. 386:1739-46).
