Your Co-Workers Are Killing You

The results of a twenty year study (of over eight hundred people) suggests that your co-workers are killing you. If you are at work right now, look around you at your co-workers...are you surprised? big grin

The first thing the researchers discovered is that office conditions matter. A lot. In particular, the risk of death seemed to be correlated with the perceived niceness of co-workers, as less friendly colleagues were associated with a higher risk of dying. (What’s troubling is that such workplaces seem incredibly common.)
