Link Between Workplace Stress and Coronoray Heart Disease

“New research has produced strong evidence of how work stress is linked to the biological mechanisms involved in the onset of heart disease…”

“..we found that chronic work stress was associated with [Coronary Heart Disease] CHD and this association was stronger among both men and women aged under 50 — their risk of CHD was an average of 68% more than for people who reported no stress at work.”

“”The effect [of work stress] on the [Autonomic Nervous System] (ANS) and neuroendocrine function in turn affects the signals to the heart, leading to cardiac instability.”
