Long Work Hours Equal High Blood Pressure

 

 

The more hours you work the more likely it is that you will have high blood pressure.

That is the finding by researchers at University of California, Irvine.

People working 11 to 39 hours had the lowest blood pressure while those working merely one hour longer, 40 hours a week, had a 14 percent increase in being hypertensive.

People working 41 to 50 hours had a 17 percent increase and those working over 51 hours had a 29 percent increase.

A healthy diet including celery can help to lower blood pressure in people who already have the problem.
