Stress at Work as Harmful as Secondhand Smoke


Researchers at Harvard Business School and Stanford University say work stress is as bad for your health as secondhand smoke. The research team looked at 228 studies assessing the effects of 10 workplace stressors on four health outcomes.

The four health outcomes were employee physical and mental health, morbidity and mortality. It was found that people who are worried about losing their jobs are 50 percent more likely to have poor health. Long work hours increase mortality by 20 percent.

High job demands raise the odds of having a physician-diagnosed illness by 35 percent. The presence of workplace stressors predicted negative health outcomes almost as well as exposure to secondhand smoke does.
