BBC NEWS | Health | Tight deadlines ‘bad for hearts’ Geez..what does this mean for daily news journalists!?!?

Setting tight work deadlines can raise the risk of suffering a heart attack six-fold, researchers believe.

Staff working hard to get a task completed on time were six times more likely to have an attack in the next 24 hours than co-workers, a study said.

Short bursts of high-pressure work were worse for the heart than stressful events in the preceding year, the Swedish study of 3,500 people said.

The study appears in the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health.
