Recent research published in The Lancet suggests working 55 hours or more per week is linked to a 33% greater risk of stroke compared with working a standard 35 to 40 hour week. It is the largest study in this field so far involving data for over 528,000 individuals.

Does anybody feel this might have applied to them?

One Response to Working longer hours ‘increases stroke risk’

  1. This is really interesting and a very large study. Wondering if the risk increases even more if there is a family history or family member who has had a stroke?
