Working overtime may be killing you, literally! A new study suggests that out of shape men who put in long hours at the office are doubling their chance of dying from heart disease. Researchers followed 5000 Danish men, aged 40-59. The men were assessed at the beginning of the study and then followed for more than 30 years. 12% of the men died from Ischemic heart disease, also known as hardening of the arteries. The study proved that working more than 45 hours a week, can prove to be fatal for those not physically fit.
