KHQ MD ALERT: Job Stress Linked To Increased Heart-Attack Risk

YAHOO.COM - "It's true, hard work never killed anybody, but I figure, why take the chance?" former President Ronald Reagan quipped at the Gridiron Dinner in 1987.

Reagan may have been onto something. A new review of research, published today in the journal Lancet, shows that job strain can increase the risk of a heart attack and death.

The findings may be particularly relevant today. As the country struggles with an unemployment rate of 8.1 percent, many people are facing tremendous pressure to perform well on the job.

A team of researchers from across Europe examined a total of 13 previous studies conducted between 1986 and 2006 that looked at job strain as a risk factor for heart attack and death. In total, the researchers evaluated data from about 200,000 patients for an average of 7.5 years, more than two times the number of patients studied in a previous review. click here to read more
