Burning the Midnight Oil Has a Stroke Risk!
Clocking an overnighter or sleeping pods at work are not unusual for many people working in the business world in big cities. Sometimes it is seen as a badge of honour. I have two young adult children working for law firms in the City in London who regularly work 16 plus hours a day, sometimes overnight to file a court case. They tell stories of young professionals who want to be seen to be the last one to leave the office at night. High coffee intake and cans of Red Bull accompany these nights of burning the midnight oil. In a high profile case in 2013, a young Merrill Lynch intern died in London from fatigue after a seven-week internship.
