Working Increases Hearth Attack Risk

Long Hours at work may boost heart-attack risk

"People who work an average of 11 or more hours per day have a 67 percent higher risk of suffering a heart attack or dying from heart disease than people who work a standard seven- to eight-hour day, according to a new study in the Annals of Internal Medicine. Those who work between 10 and 11 hours per day have a 45 percent higher risk."

I wonder how much better off the 0-hour work day is for you.
