LANDSBERGIS, Paul. Long work hours, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2004, vol.20, n.6, pp.1746-1748. ISSN 1678-4464.

However, the number of studies of long work hours with cardiovascular outcomes is limited, and further research is needed to better understand the mechanisms and moderating factors.
