  • quote:"LONDON (Reuters) – People working 10 or 11 hours a day are more likely to suffer serious heart problems, including heart attacks, than those clocking off after seven hours, researchers said on Tuesday.

    The finding, from an 11-year study of 6,000 British civil servants, does not provide definitive proof that long hours cause coronary heart disease but it does show a clear link

    the risk of having an adverse event was 60 percent higher for those who worked three to four hours overtime.

    Working an extra one to two hours beyond a normal seven-hour day was not associated with increased risk.

    // There are a number of studies showing this risk.
