A new study shows that exercise done on the job might not be that good for you—highly active laborers are more likely to die early than people who have desk jobs. “If you go out for a run for half an hour in your leisure time,” the study’s author explained, “that increases your heart rate and you feel well afterward, but when you are physically active at work, it’s a very different type of activity. You are working for eight hours a day and have limited rest periods. You are lifting, doing repetitive movements, and manual handling. Our hypothesis is that these kinds of activities actually strain your cardiovascular system rather than help you to improve the fitness of your cardiovascular system.” (The Guardian)
