Ep. 63: “Work To Death” – Long Hours Increases Chance of Stroke by 37%

Put down that work and get back to podcast listening! The three pod-ject managers explain that no one ever said “I wish I spent more time at the office” on their deathbed, because they probably keeled over at their desk from a stroke.  Raj warns of the epidemic of Karōshi (death from overwork) in Japan, and why that could lead to a boom in night vision goggles. Jono has never been safer from working too hard. Joe works the hardest, but unfortunately for everyone, golf is involved (also available on iTunes)

The Paper: “Long working hours and risk of coronary heart disease and stroke: a systematic review and meta-analysis of published and unpublished data for 603 838 individuals” (Kivimäki et al., 2015).
