A study tracked more than 85,500 British and Scandinavian people and discovered that those who worked long hours were far more likely to develop atrial fibrillation over the next decade.

Nine out of 10 of the atrial fibrillation cases occurred in people who were free of pre-existing or concurrent cardiovascular disease.”
