MONDAY, November 19, 2018 (HealthDay News) – If you are being bullied by a poor head or a colleague, your heart may pay the price, new research shows.
Victims of bullying or work-based violence were at an increased risk of heart disease and stroke, found by the researchers.
The new study of more than 79,000 European workers can not be a cause and effect. But if it's there is causal connection, eliminating bullying in the workplace "would mean we could avoid 5 per cent of all cardiovascular cases," Tianwei Xu theorized study leader. She is a doctoral student at the Copenhagen University in Denmark.
One expert in the United States agreed that bullying in the workplace was certainly unhealthy.
Even if work-related difficulties do not cause heart problems, it can "exacerbate cardiac diseases," said Curtis Reisinger. He is the main psychiatric services at the Long Island Jewish Medical Center in New Hyde Park, N.Y.
In the new study, the Xu team succeeded in tracking long-term data from more than 79,000 adults working in Denmark and Sweden, aged 18 to 65, without a previous history of heart disease.
It was reported that nine per cent were bullied at work and 13 per cent said they had violence or threats of work-related violence during the last year.
After adjusting for a number of factors, researchers found that those who were bullied at work had a higher risk of 59 per cent of heart disease than those who were not vulnerable to bullying . People who were subject to violence or threats at work had a 25% higher risk against those without such experiences.
The risks appear to rise with the level of the threat, according to a news release from the European Society of Cardiology. When compared to those who were not bullied, people who said they were often bullied (almost every day) in the past 12 months had a higher risk of 120 per cent of the disease heart, says the authors study.
Compared to those who did not experience violence or threats in the workplace, those affected were most often at risk of 36 percent more of stroke and other brain blood problems, who showed the findings.
Dr. Satjit Bhusri is a guardian at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. When reading the findings, she said "she was beginning to understand more and more the concept of heart disease caused by a strain called" broken heart syndrome ". This study shows a connection between one strain, bullying, and heart disease. "
Councilor advised that she made sense that workplace stressors can tax taxes.
He explained that, like many other animals, people can be stressed to a "stimulus" condition that, if it is consistent, can cause cardiovascular harm. Bullying in the workplace, in particular, can continue stressed stress, "home, leisure, sleep and vacation."
Bosses are the usual sources of this stress, and "in terms of human resources, people are told to leave their head, not their work," says Reisinger. "Their head is the person who is central to maintain or promote or ignore motivation in the workplace."
But even if you're unfortunately having a bullying manager, there are ways to cope.
"Stress reduction skills training includes such techniques such as relaxing muscle relaxation, thinking skills training, cognitive behavioral skills training, biodiversity recovery, yoga and similar skills," says Reisinger. "These can go far to relieve their reactions to the beekeeping environment."
The findings were published November 18 in the European Heart Journal.
