Health impacts of working long hours worse for women: What's going on?

July 16, 2016

Writer Valentina Zarya recently published an article in Fortune magazine based on recent research that explores the negative implications for women of working long hours. The study she cites suggests that women who worked an average of 60 hours a work had higher incidences of arthritis, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Men weren't nearly as impacted, with only a higher incidence of arthritis.  

 

The researcher in the original study hypothesized that women are perhaps less likely to take care of themselves given all the roles they are expected to play in their lives.

 

I'm very curious to hear from women what you believe might be some of the underlying causes contributing to this disturbing research finding?
