Alright, a new study is suggesting that working long hours may raise your risk of heart disease!

Well, I for one do work a lot, so naturally I am intrigued by what this study has to say, so I have done my research into this report and here’s the story.

Now, the reports state that the researchers analyzed data from more than 1,900 people in a long-term study of work. They found that 43 percent had been diagnosed with a problem related to cardiovascular disease (CVD), such as angina, coronary artery disease, heart failure, heart attack, high blood pressure or stroke.

Among full-time employees, the risk rose 1 percent for each additional hour worked per week over 10 years or more.

The researchers stated that beginning from anything after 46 hours, additional work hours increased the risk of heart disease even more.

Now, compared to those who averaged 45 hours a week for 10 years or more, the risk of heart disease was 16 percent higher among those who worked 55 hours a week and 35 percent higher among those who worked 60 hours a week.

With that being stated, according to the study in the March issue of the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine of the Journal the study’s results did NOT apply to part-time workers and the researchers are quick to add that the study also did not necessarily prove a cause-and-effect relationship between long hours at work and increased heart disease risk.

Well, the study’s author Sadie Conway, of the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston explains in her statement: “This study provides specific evidence on long work hours and an increase [in] the risk of Cardiovascular Diseases, thereby providing a foundation for CVD prevention efforts focused on work schedule practices, which may reduce the risk of CVD for millions of working Americans.”

So, what do you all think about this story?

Do you agree with what the researchers are suggesting that working long hours may raise your risk of heart disease?

Personally, I have read that working too many hours (which is the equivalent of getting inadequate sleep) may lead to weight gain, considering that

  1. Such people will more than likely be sitting at desk all day long
  2. Such people will more than likely be eating unhealthy foods, not getting adequate fresh air, sunlight etc…so maybe, just maybe these researchers may be on to something after all.

Hey, let me leave you all with this Bible Verse when it comes to working too much “It is useless for you to work so hard from early morning until late at night, anxiously working for food to eat; for God gives rest to his loved ones.” Psalm 127:2

Now, is this a license to just be lazy and not do anything…? Nope…

Here’s another Bible Verse that addresses that: “Do not love sleep or you will grow poor; stay awake and you will have food to spare.” Proverbs 20:13…

And yet another…. “It is good to grasp the one and not let go of the other because the wise man will avoid all extremes.” Ecclesiastes 7:18

In other words folks, try to find the balance between NOT overworking yourself and NOT oversleeping…and as far as preventing Cardiovascular Diseases by supposedly not working too many hours in the office, well…here’s arguably one of the BEST ways to avoid any degenerative disease:

  1. Eat a natural PLANT based diet of seasonal, seeded fruits and Vegetables and steer clear of processed, manufactured foods such as EXCESSIVE animal products, dairy, baked items, junk greasy foods etc.


  1. Engage in Physical activities that you enjoy such as walking, hiking, jogging, Yoga, Pilates etc…
