According to research published in the British Medical Journal, shift workers are more at risk of having a heart attack or stroke than day workers.

(The researchers from Norway and Canada calculated that shift work was linked to a 23% increased risk of heart attack, 24% increased risk of coronary event and 5% increased risk of stroke. The researchers said that shift work can disrupt the body clock and have an adverse effect on lifestyle. I know that when my body clock is disrupted it has an adverse effect on hubby’s lifestyle.)
