Meta analysis of 6 prospective studies involving138,000 patients showed patients with a high level of strain in their job were associated with a 22% increase in the risk of stroke. A high strain job was defined as one with high demand but low control. The effect was more prominent in women and activity or passivity in the job had no impact on outcome.
