An eleven years research done in Japan reported that work stress can increase the risk of stroke significantly.
Based on observation of 3,190 volunteers of men and 3,363 volunteers of women from various career backgrounds, researchers found that 147 volunteers were attacked by stroke.
From the amount, 91 were men and the rest were women. This research concluded that men who experience high stress at work place face double the risk of stroke compared to women.
The research also found that women who face the same level of stress did not record stroke statistic as high as men.
This research discovery invites the question whether women naturally can handle stress better than men, at home and also at workplace.
However, this research statistic also needs to take into account external factors such as lifestyles outside office, dietary and diseases suffered by volunteers to further strengthen the research finding.Sponsored links:
