Low-income people are twice as likely to develop heart disease

New York: A new study has found that men in stressful jobs and low wages are twice as likely to develop heart disease than others. The study, published in the journal Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes, showed that psychosocial stress at work can increase the risk of heart disease.

“Given the significant amount of time spent at work, it is important to understand the relationship between work stress and cardiovascular health and well-being in the workforce,” said Mathilde Lavigne-Robichaud of the CHU de Québec-University Laval research center in Quebec, Canada important for.”

The study found that men who suffer from job stress or low pay have a 49 percent increased risk of heart disease compared to other men. However, men who reported both job stress and unbalanced pay had twice the risk of heart disease as men who did not suffer from combined stress.

The effects of psychosocial workplace stress on women’s cardiovascular health have been inconclusive. According to Lavigne-Robichaud, “work stress” refers to a work environment in which employees are subject to high demands and have less control over their work.

The researchers examined nearly 6,500 workers with an average age of 45 who did not have heart disease between 2000 and 2018. The researchers measured work stress and wage imbalance using the questionnaire results. Information on cardiovascular disease was obtained using health databases.

Robichaud said: “Our results suggest that interventions to reduce stress in the work environment may be particularly effective for men and potentially also beneficial for women, as these stressors such as depression are linked to other common health problems.”

“The study’s inability to establish a direct link between psychosocial workplace stress and coronary heart disease in women suggests that further investigation into the complex interplay of women’s cardiovascular health is needed,” Robichaud said.
