What’s the link between your work and your health? If there is one, is it positive or negative? Get details of an intriguing survey here.
While 44 percent of working adults surveyed say their current job has an impact on their overall health, just 28 percent said that impact is positive. The findings are from a new study by NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
In the survey of more than 1,600 U.S. workers, one in six report that their current job has a negative impact on their health. That response was more likely among those with disabilities and those in dangerous or low-paying jobs, those working in retail, and those who work more than 50 hours per week.
