Working Overtime May Harm Your Heart

People who regularly put in overtime can increase their heart disease risk by nearly two-thirds.

The findings come from a study of 6,000 people. The researchers found that those who worked three to four hours of overtime a day ran a 60 percent higher risk.

According to BBC News:

“... there could be a number of explanations for this. People who spend more time at work have less time to exercise, relax and unwind. They may also be more stressed, anxious, or have depression. “
