New research has found that having a difficult boss can be bad for your health. Working for a horrible boss can come with stress, long hours and a bad office atmosphere.
The study found that chronic stress causes changes in the gene activity in immune cells.
These changes cause the cells to be primed to fight an infection that doesn’t exist.
The mind-body connection is well established, and research has confirmed stress is associated with health problems.
However, exactly how stress can harm health is still under investigation.
