Job Burnout Predisposes to Heart Disease

submitted by: admin on 10/09/2013


Accprdomg to a study in Psychosomatic Medicine in March of 2013, Americans work longer hours, take fewer vacation days, and retire later than employees compared to other countries. This leads to job burnout, and it is related to premature coronary artery disease and heart attacks. The top 20% of the burnout scale had a 79% increase risk of coronary disease. Burnout is a stronger predictor of the risk for heart disease than smoking, blood lipid levels, and lack of physical activity!

Obviously, the solution is to decrease job stress and increase quality of life. Early detection, as suggested by the authors of this article, is not the answer.
