Study: Work stress puts women at risk for heart disease

Did you know?

Research presented at the AHA Scientific Sessions 2010 from Women with Harvard Medical School in Boston concluded that women with demanding jobs but little control over their daily work have an 88% higher risk of heart attack than women with low job strain.

In addition, fear of losing one’s job was associated with increased blood pressure, cholesterol and body weight – risk factors for heart disease.
