A study published in the medical journal, The Lancet, people who work long hours are likely to have a stroke (CVA).

The results are based on investigated involving more than half a million people.

The study showed that, compared to a working week of 35-40 hours, the risk increases by 10% for those working 48 hours and is 33% for more than 55 hours.

Dr. Mika Kivimaki from University College London said that researchers are only at the beginning of understanding the phenomenon.
