Job burnout – or smoking? Well, if you’re exhausted by your work – physically and emotionally… And your boss is a jerk… You’re a prime candidate for heart problems. A new study has found a strong link between job burnout and coronary heart disease – which is when plaque builds up in your arteries and can lead to a heart attack. In fact, people who were at the top of the job burnout scale were 80% more likely to have coronary disease. That was WAY more extreme than the researchers expected… and it makes job burnout a stronger predictor of heart disease than smoking, high cholesterol and stress! So if your job is making you sick – you may want to change jobs before it kills you, literally.
