The Health Benefits of Work (Part 5)

Yet another nail in the coffin for the supposed “Health Benefits of Work” can be found in a recent study carried out by Curtin University, published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine on 14 May 2014.  Apparently, exercise is beneficial when it is a leisure time activity, but detrimental  for workers engaging in high level occupational physical activity. In other words, far from there being a health benefit from work, there is a health detrement!
