    Working too hard / long can kill you

    Another study directly implicating work stress in not only chronic, degenerative conditions but also death directly. Apparently, as corrupt/inept as W.H.O is, the evidence linking hard work with early death is too strong even for them to ignore. Btw, what the study used as definition for "hard"...

    Differences between begging and working -- a comprehensive outlook of livelihood.

    I've heard that you should find a job so you don't fall in to the ranks of begging. After all, begging is just something asking for money and does not make any themselves, right? I wonder what percent of people would want or expect something from someone else who has to give it to them, ignoring...

    People Who Refuse The COVID-19 Vaccine May Be Banned Socially

    And so it begins, at least in the UK/EU. When we first discussed this back in May here on the forum the majority of the comments were "You guys are nuts. Nobody is going to ban you from working, travelling or going to the bar if you don't get vaccinated". Just as we also discussed, the narrative...

    Long Work Hours Linked To Hypothyroidism

    The connection between stress and health issues is perhaps the best kept "public secret". As the saying goes, the only people who do not believe in the pathology of stress are doctors...and the dead. I would add to this category the profession of statisticians who publish studies like the one...

    Workplace Stress Is Literally Killing People; Mass Lawsuits Are Imminent

    It is good to see that even business school people - that bastion of workaholism - are finally opening their eyes to what the modern workplace is doing to the health of the populace. Even though I think this realization will fall on deaf years when it comes to executives changing the work...

    Novel (learning) Experiences Can Be A Buffer Against Workplace Stress

    As the forum users know rather well by know, novelty seeking and enjoyment are driven by dopamine and require a significant amount of metabolic energy. Most workplaces, especially large corporations, actively discourage novelty- seeking, behavior or personalities due to the firmly entrenched...

    Standing At Work May Be A Lot More Dangerous Than Sitting

    I am sure many people here have seen the flood of ads for "standing desks" - a raised desk without a chair which a person uses to work in an upright position instead of sitting. Thee have been many health claims made for these desks, none of which have been verified so far in controlled studies...

    Physical Stress Or Night-shift Work Decrease Female Fertility

    The study looked at women who performed physically demanding work but it also applies to those to regularly exercise as the exertion load defined in this study can easily be replicated by running a few miles 2-3 times a week, doing HIIT, or even hitting the gym a few times a week and working...

    Stress At Work Increases Risk For Certain Cancers

    I suspect work stress increases risk for all cancers but that would be too political of a study to conduct. For now, we can say that it at least increase risk for GI and bladder cancers. ScienceDirect "...Employment in at least one stressful job was associated with increased odds of cancers of...
