The Life Insurance Market
News on heart problems among women this week could mean the increasing amount of women in high stress roles, should look to invest in critical illness cover.
Researchers from the Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, found that women performing in high stress jobs have increased risk of heart problems.
The study shows the risk of cardiovascular disease goes up 40 per cent among female patients, when they undertake demanding jobs.
The 88 per cent increased risk of a heart attack such individuals face, will serve as a reminder for people considering life insurance.
The researchers define job strain as a form of psychological stress in a role which does not allow for the expression of a person's creative or individual skills.
Considering just how many jobs like this there currently are in Britain, it might be worth starting to compare life insurance, for peace of mind should the worst happen.
