I'm not interested in a flame war either (yea! something we agree on :-)). I'm aware that science can't actually prove anything, but that's usually not a good reason for rejecting the results of scientific studies. Yes take them with a pinch of salt, but I'm inclined to believe this one.

The group of people who consistently work long hours are also the group of people who are prone to ill health. There may well be other factors involved - feel free to take the chance if you want to :-)

    I don't disbelieve scientific studies, just that for me to actually believe a scientific study I have to see the write ups and decide for myself. A lot of scientific studies are done by magazines, people who don't really take pride in their art and they look for the provocative truth.

    I do however, work a 50+ hr week, and I'm only 20 years old. I work as a programmer and system admin on my breaks from University! I do it because I generally enjoy the work ( except when some asshole ex Navy Admiral gets on my case because his computer can't do everything he wants ) and yea, I end up pretty tired most days ( in at 7:30 and out at 5:30 ) but it's a job, and I do take pride in it.
    Heck, I'd love to work for more pay, and only work 40- hours a week, and I probably will be able to once I graduate. I'm in D.C. the market is wide open here.
