From London – Stress at work does not raise risk of cancer, according to a report published in the BMJ. Researchers conducted a meta-analysis of 12 studies comprised of 116,000 participants aged 17-70. Participant’s psychological stress at work was assessed using job strain. Results showed that 5% of participants developed cancer over an average of 12 years follow-up. There was no connection between elevated job strain and risk cancer.
