Craziness....both my parents worked 60+ hrs/wk and they are fine. In fact, my mother is a medal-winning triathlete and my father bikes every day. It's completely possible to be a well-adjusted and healthy workaholic... :)

    I've had smokers tell me that thier grand parents smoked 100 a day and lived to be in their nineties. That's a really crap reason for ignoring medical advice and continuing to smoke.

    So it doesn't appear to have done your parents any harm (I'm willing to accept that it didn't). Just as some people are more prone to heart disease, some are more prone to develop lung cancer etc. some people are prone to develop ill health through excessive working hours.

    Are you one of those people? I don't know. Am I one of those people? again I don't know, but I'm not willing to gamble my long term health on it. I reserve my reckless stupidity for other things (I'm over weight which doctors tell me is really bad for me and I drink strong black coffee which is also bad - you pays your money and you makes your choices)

    Update: I've read this again and It's almost reads like I'm calling you recklessly stupid. I'm not, please don't take it that way. I'm trying to say that almost everyone makes "stupid" short sighted decisions with their health. Everyone's choices will be different.

    Great! I commend your parents!!! *heartfelt applause*

    But I think you gave your answer right there....

    Your parents take care of themselves physically. That is why they can handle the stress of working so much.
    *looking at my pale skin* I know I could take a few pointers from them.
