Job Burnout = Diabetes???

In the study of 677 mostly middle-aged male Israeli workers, researchers found that those who suffered from job burnout, Emotional exhaustion, Physical fatigue and cognitive weariness - were 1.84 times more likely to develop Type 2 Diabetes even after accounting for other factors that could cause the disease. The study also noted that prolonged job burnout may "Set the stage" for the attack of other diseases.

In short. Relax, smell the flowers, don't stressed out too much... If you are the type who are easily stressed, watch out!!!
