 Even Mild Stress Affects Health Adversely

Suffering from even mild stress can prove to be detrimental to a person's long term health and severely affect their ability to work, a new study published in the online edition of Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health said.

Researchers from the University of Bristol and the Karolinska Institute in Sweden conducted an extensive study involving more than 17,000 people between 18 to 64 years of age. They found that if a person suffers from even a mild stress, then the possibility of him having a psychiatric condition more than doubled.

The researchers also found that the chances of a mildly stressed person living on disability payments increased by 70 percent. Around 650 people involved in the study started to receive disability payment during the study period with just over 200 of them receiving the payments for mental problems while the rest suffered from physical problems.

"Mild psychological distress may be associated with more long-term disability than previously acknowledged and its public health importance may be underestimated", the researchers wrote.
