Stress Is A Killer At Work Says Doctors

Work really can kill you, according to a new study providing the strongest evidence yet of how on-the-job stress raises the risk of heart disease by disrupting the body's internal systems.

The findings from a long-running study involving more than 10,000 British civil servants also suggest stress-induced biological changes may play a more direct role than previously thought, said Tarani Chandola, an epidemiologist at University College London.

"This is the first large-scale population study looking at the effects of stress measured from everyday working life on heart disease," said Chandola, who led the study. 

At Life and Balance Centre we specialise in assessing the effects of stress on your body, using the latest research technology called NeuroInfiniti. NeuroInfiniti tests brain waves, heart rate and 5 other neurophysiological responses to stress. From the results we can design a care plan to improve your responses and help you enjoy a much better quality of life.
