WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Women with stressful jobs are more likely to have heart attacks.

A Harvard Medical School study analyzed surveys filled out by more than twenty thousand professional working women. Researchers followed the participants for 10 years.

Experts say the stress from a job can take a toll on a woman's psychological health which can then have an effect on a woman's physical health.

They found women with the most job-related stress were nearly 70 percent more likely to suffer a heart attack.
