The team looked at data on age, smoking and working hours from a population study of more than 143,000 adults and found that just under a third worked long hours, with 10 per cent working long hours for 10 years or more. Long hours were defined in the French study as more than 10 hours on at least 50 days per year, according to the researchers, from Angers University and the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research. What's more, younger people who worked long hours for 10 years or more had a higher risk of experiencing strokes earlier in life.

People who worked longer than 10 hours a day on 50 or more occasions per year were 29% more likely to have a stroke than those who did not, researchers from Angers University in France and the French National Institute of Health and Medical Research discovered. They gathered information on the participants' cardiovascular risks, stroke history, smoking habits and the number of hours worked.

The participants working long hours had a 29 per cent greater risk of stroke, and those working long hours for 10 years or more had a 45 per cent greater risk of stroke. "This was unexpected. Further research is needed to explore this finding", said Alexis Descatha, the author of the study.

Part-time workers and those who suffered strokes before working long hours were excluded from the study.

Ali Shamkhani: Iran does not take Trump nor his remarks seriously
In the tweets from 2011, Trump claims Obama "will start a war with Iran" to help poll numbers in his 2012 re-election campaign. Iran acknowledged that it shot down the drone, saying the craft had strayed into the nation's airspace.

Working long hours is linked to an increased risk of stroke, researchers say. Researchers noted that it might be because those groups generally have greater decision latitude than other workers.

But he suggested it could be that at a younger age the working conditions, irregular schedules and stress that can accompany working long hours might have more of a negative impact on the heart than other factors - such as being overweight and having high blood pressure - that typically affect older men and women.

"Somewhere in the range of 40 to 50 hours per week is more than enough for most people", Randy Simon, Ph.D., a licensed clinical psychologist based in New Jersey, told Healthline.
