Burnout and Heart Failure

This study connects burnout to fatal irregularities in heartbeat.  It can appear with increasing symptoms such as chest pain and fatigue, or nothing beyond the symptoms of burnout itself.  I was reminded of a doctor calling heart disease a "silent killer" among women.  And who gets worked to death the most?  Women.

Somehow, I doubt that this will make employers accountable for murdering people with overwork, but it might alert people to sacrifice a bad job or relationship in hopes of survival.  This shit really will kill you.
