Changing Families: Is your job killing you?


CHANGING FAMILIES - You may already know this intuitively, but a new study shows that your job could influence your risk of heart disease and stroke.

According to a study from the U.S. Public Health Service, middle-aged employees working in sales, office or food service jobs have a higher risk for heart attack and stroke compared to those with professional or managerial jobs.

The study says those in sales and office jobs more often smoke, eat an unhealthy diet, are sedentary and suffer from high blood pressure. Food service employees ate worse than those in any other profession.

Police, firefighters, truckers and health care support workers also are more likely to have these risk factors. Truckers and other materials transportation workers had the highest smoking rates.
