Work Stress Linked to Higher Asthma Risk

If you regularly feel stressed by your job, you may have a higher risk of developing asthma.

Researchers found that among more than 5,100 adults they followed for nearly a decade, those who reported high job stress were twice as likely to develop asthma.

According to Reuters:

“... the findings build on other evidence that chronic stress may contribute to asthma development in some people ... Other studies ... have linked distressing life events and stress-related personality traits, for example, to heightened asthma risk.”
