Slow Down Gar
- If you're putting in more than 55 hours a week at work, the chances are good that you're working toward having a stroke, researchers say. A study involving more than 600,000 people found that people who work that many hours have a 33% higher stroke risk and a 13% higher risk of coronary heart disease than people working 35 to 40 hours a week, the Guardian reports.
The researchers, whose study is published in the Lancet, say that the risk goes up with every hour worked on top of 40 a week, with those working up to 48 hours increasing the risk by 10% and those working up to 54 hours by 27%.
On the other hand, you might be improving the overall health of the pension by not collecting any money.
