Job loss can make you sick, new study finds

In the face of rising unemployment and businesses declaring bankruptcy, a new study has found that losing your job can make you sick. Even when people find a new job quickly, there is an increased risk of developing a new health problem, such as hypertension, heart disease, heart attack, stroke or diabetes as a result of the job loss. 

"In today's economy, job loss can happen to anybody," said Kate Strully, who conducted the research as a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health and Society scholar at the Harvard School of Public Health. "We need to be aware of the health consequences of losing our jobs and do what we can to alleviate the negative effects."

Millions Endure Anxiety Everyday, Studies show that only 2 in 5 seek any assistance. 

Despite anxiety and stress being one of today's most common disorders, it is regularly under diagnosed by medical professionals.

Most of us experience occasional feelings of anxiety -- muscle tension, headache, nausea, fatigue, or trembling -- before important events such as exams, public speaking, first dates, or during times of stress such as a divorce, job change or a change in residence.

However, many are also experiencing a more chronic form of anxiety, which has been linked to depression, heart disease, autoimmune disorders, and premature cell aging. New evidence suggests that negative emotions can make people crave fatty, sugary comfort foods, which promotes obesity and insulin resistance.
