Long Work Hours=Higher Heart Disease Risk

Examining a group of some 7000 low-risk British civil servants, researchers found that long work hours make the risk of heart disease higher. After adjusting for their Framingham risk score, those who worked 11 or more hours per day had a 67% increased risk for coronary disease compared to those who worked the normal 7-8 hours. The authors suggest “further testing is needed.”
