Study on your jobs impact on your heart

New research reveals an unhealthy lifestyle combined with job stress can take a toll on your heart.

A British study of more than 15,000 adults found those who felt work-related stress had an increased risk of coronary artery disease. The risk was even higher when they also had at least two unhealthy behaviors, like smoking, excessive drinking, physical inactivity and obesity.

Those with job strain and a healthy lifestyle had about half the rate of coronary heart disease.
