News that Vexes

It's so tiresome to read 'new studies' that reveal Smoking, Stress or Obesity are Bad for you. Yet these studies appear all the time. It's time to take back the newswire from so-called Scientists!

Blood pressure rises in stressed-out workers

Sure, this story is annoying, obvious and redundant. So we'll be brief.

New study findings confirm what some office managers, senior management officials and other white-collar workers have suspected for years: working in highly stressful jobs can increase your blood pressure.

"These results suggest that primary interventions aimed at reducing job strain may have significant effects on blood pressure," Dr. Chantal Guimont, of Laval University, in Quebec City, Quebec, and her colleagues write in this month's American Journal of Public Health.

In this blog we've used the words "DUH!" and "Uh YEAH" and "NO KIDDING!" so many times that our a,d,e,g,h,i,k,n,o,u and y keys are wearing out. So we'll leave this shocking news as it is.
