Prof Steptoe: 'High job strain' linked to heart disease


A new study published in the Lancet throws new light on the research that has been done into the link between stress at work and heart attacks.

Co-author of the study and professor of epidemiology and public health at University College in London Prof Andrew Steptoe, explains his findings.

He said people who reported "high job strain" - a combination of stress and a lack of control at work - were at increased risk of developing heart disease.
