As the song suggests, “She really does work hard for the money.”  A new study maintains that women who have stressful jobs are at greater risk for heart attacks, and may need coronary bypass surgery.  The research presented by the American Heart Association also contends that when women worry about losing their jobs, it can lead to high blood pressure and high cholesterol.  This is a first of its kind study to examine the overall impact of work related stress on women’s health.  Previous studies have only focused on the effects on men, and yes, they are at greater risk as well.
