||Working hours as a risk factor for acute myocardial infarction in Japan: Case-control study
||19 Sep. 1998, Vol.317, No.7161, p.775-780. Illus. 32 ref.
||The extent to which working hours affect the risk of acute myocardial infarction was investigated in 195 men aged 30-69 years with acute myocardial infarction and in 331 controls. There was a U shaped relation between the mean working hours and the risk of acute myocardial infarction. There also seemed to be a trend for the risk of infarction to increase with greater increases in mean working hours. Topics: case-control study; hazard evaluation; hours of work; male workers; myocardial infarction; risk factors.
