Are you working longer than 46 hours per week, then you may be at an increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD), according to a new study.

The report published in the March issue of the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, revealed that the risk of CVD increased as the average weekly working hours increased, researchers out of The University of Texas proved.

People who worked 40 to 50 hours per week had the lowest cardiovascular risk, the researchers noted.

Researchers analysed data from more than 1900 participants during the study, all of whom were employed for at least a decade.  Source: http://content.safetyculture.com.au/news/index.php/03/study-examines-relationship-work-hours-cardiovascular-disease-risk/#.VvB1qOJ97IV
