A study has shown that work related stress may cause cancer in men. The type of cancer ranges from lung to colon cancer. The study found no link between people who did not work very stressful jobs for less than 15 years. Firefighter and Industrial engineer were 2 of the jobs considered to be the most stressful.

Key Takeaways:

  • A link between work-related stress and cancer was not found in participants who had held stressful jobs for less than 15 years, researchers said.
  • The most stressful jobs included firefighter, industrial engineer, aerospace engineer, mechanic foreman and vehicle and railway-equipment repair worker.
  • The study also shows that perceived stress is not limited to high work load and time constraints.
