Depression threatens women who work long hours

Depression threatens women who work long hours

Undoubtedly, working women are in fact divorced women. Often, if a working woman is a woman and a wife, it means that she works for two consecutive periods without rest, but this life system may have many health effects on women, according to a recent British study.

Women who work more than 55 hours per week are more likely to have depression than those who work 35 to 40 hours, the study says.

While men who worked the same hours did not show similar signs of the disease.

The researchers reasoned that this was because women faced a "double burden" that combined the long hours and hours they spent in domestic chores, often without the help of partners.

The findings were based on data from more than 20,000 British adults who participated in a long-term family study in the UK.

The results found that women who worked at least 55 hours per week had a 7.3 percent greater risk of developing depression than those who worked 35 to 40 hours.

The researchers found that both men and women who work most or all weekends are more likely to be depressed than those who work only in normal working days.
