Working Women More Susceptible to Diabetes Due to Stress Eating

Women who have "little or no control" over their jobs are at double the risk for diabetes than women who are happy with their career. The same is not the case for men, who "react differently to workplace stress." Lead researcher Peter Smith followed 7,443 working women in Ontario who had no previous diagnoses of diabetes. Over the course of Smith’s 9-year study, 19% of the diagnosed women reported "low job control," which he says results in turning to foods with higher fat and sugar content than men do in similar situations. It’s a higher statistic for diabetes causation than smoking, drinking or minimal physical activity.
