Work Stress

heart disease link

Stress in the workplace is a major factor in the development of heart disease and diabetes, a study says.
Stress has long been linked to ill health, but the British Medical Journal study may have identified the biological process for the first time. The study of 10,000 civil servants found a link between stress and metabolic syndrome, which involves obesity and high blood pressure.
Experts said the University College London report was "interesting".
Lead researcher Tarani Chandola said: "Employees with chronic work stress have more than double the odds of the syndrome than those without work stress, after other risk factors are taken into account.
"The study provides evidence for the biological plausibility of psycho-social stress mechanisms linking stressors from everyday life with heart disease."
During the study between 1985 and 1999, levels of work stress were measured four times.
The researchers also measured the different aspects of metabolic syndrome - a cluster of factors which cause heart disease and diabetes - such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels between 1997 and 1999.
Factors such as social class, smoking, high alcohol consumption and lack of exercise were all recorded as part of the study.
The researchers discovered that there was a link between the amount of stress experienced in their job and the levels of metabolic syndrome symptoms, even when considering the other risk factors.

This relationship meant that the more stress someone suffered, the more likely they were to suffer metabolic syndrome symptoms.
The researchers said that, for example, men who suffered chronic work stress were twice as likely to develop the syndrome as men who had no exposure to stress.
Women with chronic stress were also more likely to suffer from metabolic syndrome, although they formed only a small group in the study.
The researchers said one possible explanation for the result may be that prolonged exposure to work stress affects the nervous system.
They also suggested that chronic stress may reduce biological resilience, thus disturbing the body's physiological balance.
The study also found that both men and women from lower employment grades were more likely to have metabolic syndrome, confirming past reports that social status is linked to the risk of the syndrome. A Diabetes UK spokesman said the study was "interesting" and confirmed what had long been suspected.
"The influence of work stress has been known to increase the likelihood of developing high blood pressure and heart disease which are factors for diabetes."
Professor Peter Weissberg, medical director of the British Heart Foundation, said stress was often linked to having little control over work.
And he added: "The good news is that many of the features of the metabolic syndrome can be reversed or improved by lifestyle changes, in particular increasing exercise and losing weight, combined with stopping smoking."

Jealousy is a disease of the heart. It is, perhaps, one of the oldest problems of human beings. 

Causes of Jealousy

1-Enmity: One has animosity for a person or group and does not want to see anything good happen to that person or group.
2-Ambition: It hurts a person to see someone else ahead or above him/her.
3-Pride and Arrogance: When a person is self conceited and arrogant, he/she feels very jealous to see anyone else going ahead or doing better.
4-Astonishment: Some time a person feels astonished that another person could do better than him/her. He/she feels surprised: 'How come that person became so rich, so successful, so popular, etc.?'
5-Fear: Fear that if another person would have such and such thing, then he/she may not have it.
6-Desire for power and prestige: Sometimes a person becomes jealous because he/she want to make one great by putting others down.
7-Evil nature and avarice of the heart: Some people just do not like to see others happy. They want to see the whole world in misery and difficulty except their own selves.
Normally jealousy occurs among people who know each other. It happens among siblings, among family members, people of the same profession and age.

"Do not be jealous of each other, do not boycott each other, do not hate each other, do not contrive against each other. Be all of you brothers to each other.

Engr Iqbal Ahmed Khan

 Learning to Appreciate 
"Mom… I am ready", shouted Zara as she hurried down the stairs with the gift in her hand. "Trash" came the sound as the gift fell from her hand and the beautiful ceramic vase broke into pieces "Oh, no", exclaimed Zara, "Now the gift is gone and there is no point in going to Afsheen's party now".  
The poor girl returned into her room and sobbed. Her mother went up to see her sobbing daughter and Zara complained, "Mom, why does this always happen to me?"
Mother stroking her hair said, "My dear, every time when something bad happens, it gets noticed, but when something good happens, it goes unnoticed. We always complain when things don't turn as desired. See you are moaning over the fall of gift but will you have been excited if it had not fallen down?"
There is lesson in this above related incident for all of us. We all act like Zara. We do complain when things turn bad. We groan and make fuss. We protest about the harshness of destiny. But, what about the times when things turn well? Do we notice them? Do we feel pleased? Do we thank God for it? We rarely do so. The good things go unappreciated. The nice happenings are not acknowledged. They are mostly taken for granted.
It is not only the young ones but elders also who tend to forget to appreciate the good things. Flat tyre makes the elder brother angry. But how many times is he able to ride without having flat tyre? Of course the frequency of occurrence of flat tyre as compared to no flat tyre is too low. Same is the case with other bad things. The number of nice things and good happenings is much more than the bad ones. Still the bad ones get noticed and the good ones pass unacknowledged.
Dear fellows, learn to appreciate the good things. Thank God for them. Keep in touch with God in good times as well as bad ones. Most people turn to Lord when bad things happen. Angels find such voices as new. But for those who remember Allah in good times also, when they pray for help in bad times, angels recognize them. They say this is familiar voice and they ask God to help him because he did not forget Him in good times.
Food for thought for this week is to analyze yourself… find out if you appreciate and notice the good things that happen to you, or just the bad? And mend your behavior for the good. The secret is: there is always something to complain about and there is always something to be thankful for. You have to make the choice.
