Long work hours linked to cancer, heart disease in women

(UPI) Women who work long hours may have increased risk for a range of health conditions, including heart disease, diabetes and cancer, according to new research.
The amount of time people work has been shown to have an effect on health, and a recent study by researchers at Ohio State University suggests the effects of 50- or 60-hour work weeks has a significantly worse effect on women than men over the course of several decades…
While the new study is focused on early onset of disease and conditions, the distinction that women are at greater risk for developing health problems because of work is new -- and may be made worse by the overall expectations of women beyond just their careers.
