Long working hours leaves little time for exercise. Such workers also eat unhealthy, due to lack of time and fatigue.  Earlier studies have also indicated a risk of dementia among those who work long hours.

It is certainly not worth compromising ones health to toil those extra hours, for you may climb the ladder of success at an irreversible cost.
