 Working for More Hours Increases Your Risk of Heart Attack by 67%

Working for extra hours in the office can increase the risk of heart disease, say researchers at the University College London (UCL). The study has shown that working for 11-hours per day as compared to the standard 7-8hours increases a person's risk of heart attack by 67%.

This study could be useful for general practitioners (GP's) while assessing a patient's risk of heart disease along with other indicators like blood pressure, diabetes and smoking habits. Similarly this information could also be a wake-up call for people who over exert themselves.
