How much stress does your job place on you? If you’re a firefighter, commercial pilot, corporate executive or taxi driver, you’re probably suffering from work-induced stress on a daily basis.
Certain careers cause a great deal of stress. And stress is far from a good thing for our bodies. According to some studies, two-thirds of U.S. residents say that stress has caused them health problems.
This isn’t surprising: Recent research suggests that many of the physical changes associated with stress may contribute to the leading causes of death in the United States, heart disease and cancer.
