Apparently, your work can kill you. A new study from Ohio State University found that chronic-stress related to a negative work environment or overbearing boss can lead to health issues such as diabetes and heart disease. A test done on mice, compared to human subjects suffering from similar environments, showed that chronic-stress affects genes in the immune system- causing inflammation of cells that leads to infection and disease. Chronic-stress has a strong effect on the human brain- meaning it has more control over the condition of our health than originally perceived.
