 Working Overtime Works Badly for the Heart

Those working longer than eight hours everyday stand a 40 to 50% chance of suffering a stroke or becoming victims of heart disease, a recent study has revealed.

Prolonged exposure to stress caused by working overtime can increase the risk of heart disease and considering the lifestyle in the present day, this could be putting thousands of employees under risk.

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.
