UN study shows: too much work leads to death

745,000 people die every year from too much work. This is shown by a current UN study by the World Health Organization and the international labor organization.

Hamburg / Geneva – Many people live for their job, they only know work, work, work. But according to a UN study, this is exactly what makes you sick and can even lead to death. Accordingly, people who work more than 55 hours a week increase the risk of heart disease and stroke dramatically. In 2016, these long hours had resulted in 745,000 deaths worldwide. Since 2000, the risk of heart disease has increased by 40 because of too much work. The risk of having a stroke as a result of too much work has increased by 19 percent.
