Recession Depression

The recession has had a 'significant impact' on the mental well-being of the UK's workforce, according to new research  punlished by Mind.  One in 10 people visited their GP for mental health support last year as a result of recession-induced stress. 

Cancer and Work
Cancer kills around 1.2 million people each year in the European Union. Between
65 000 and 100 000 of these deaths are believed to be directly caused by working conditions. Others are the result of environmental exposures which, in many cases, are themselves related to firms’ business activities.
