According to the study conducted in Vegas in 2006, it was found that the 62 patients of heart attack in younger people below the age of 45 years, occupation-wise the figures as were follows: executives or managers 4, businessmen 11, professionals(physicians and lawyers) 4, armed forces or police service 2, skilled or semi skilled workers(mechanics and technicians) 7, offices personnel(clerks and secretaries) 13, unskilled workers(labors and formers) 15, unemployed 3, housewives 3. from the above figures, it seems that no one group of people in a particular occupation is more liable to get heart attacks at a relatively younger age. In another study from china – curiously enough- manual workers suffered more heart attacks in the younger age compared with those having sedentary occupations.
