Long hours at work can raise your blood pressure

Is it just me, or do there seem to be a lot of research and studies lately that seem completely redundant? The no-shit-Sherlock department seems to be putting in a lot of long hours on studies that most people seem to already know from experience and/or common sense.

Researchers from the University of California, Irvine, have found that working longer hours is directly associated with hypertension, even after adjusting for biological risk factors such as gender and ethnicity.

Gosh, who would have thought?

And these studies are paid for by our tax dollars, and are "earmarked" as such by our glorious politicians in Congress.

Studies to prove what we already know, or to prove what we know to be utterly untrue through the usual liberal application of "statistics"

Color me surprised.

We should use money for stupid crap like this to by me a new 45, or something useful like that.

Sometimes it wasn't the long hours near as much as it was the sumbitches round me that raised my blood pressure

I hear you guyk; and the longer you have to put up with them, the higher the blood pressure goes.
