In our books and blogs we discuss the risk of living under severe stress. Now there is more evidence to support this concern. The European Journal of Preventive Cardiology reported a large study that concluded that people with high stress jobs are at an increased risk for atrial fibrillation.
Such jobs involve high psychological demands but little control over the work situation. The researchers concluded that having a high strain job increased the risk of atrial fibrillation by nearly 50%.
