Working overtime may increase the risk of heart disease, but according to new research, you can stay in shape and eliminate risk and prevent serious heart damage.
People who work more than 45 hours a week, have twice the risk of cardiovascular mortality compared with those working normal hours or less than 40 hours a week , says study author Andreas Holterman.
If you are in good shape and exercise, then excessive working hours will not increase the risk of heart disease. The focus of the study included 5,000 men, aged between 40 and 59 years and were followed for more than 30 years, so that the data delivered from this study are valid.
Working additional hours burdens the cardiovascular system and speeds up the nervous system, causing increased heart rate and blood pressure. But if you are in good shape, the body can recover regenerate faster.
Therefore, if you work overtime , the risk of cardiovascular disease will decrease by active sports such as soccer,basketball, jogging all kinds of cardio workout, of course, if you find time for it, but of course it is strongly suggested that you find time for it.
