FOR HEALTHY HEART, LEAVE WORK STRESS BEHIND DURING WEEKENDS

Forgetting about work stress over the weekend may be key to warding off stroke and heart attack, say scientists.

Investigators tracked 788 workers for 28 years. Those who reported that they seldom recovered from the fatigue and stress of the work week over the weekend had triple the risk of dying from cardiovascular disease, as opposed to workers who relaxed over the weekend. These findings remained after researchers controlled for various risk factors of cardiovascular disease.
