Job Stress Can Hurt Your Heart
A stressful job increases your chance of a heart attack.Â Doctors have been telling us that for years.Â Now, there's a study, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, suggestingÂ that going back to that stressful job doubles your chance of a second heart attack.
Doctors typically advise heart patients to lower their heart disease risk factors including smoking, obesity, lack of exercise, high cholesterol and high blood pressure.Â These new findings may also have doctors prescribing lower job stress as a way for patients to prevent recurrent heart problems.
