The average American works about 47 to 50 hours per week. Everyone needs to make ends meet, but at what cost to your health?

A new American Heart Association study now looks at the link between working long hours and an increased risk of stroke.

Taking time out for himself is something 42-year-old Jeff Hiserodt never used to do.

“I was putting in close to 60 to 65 hours,” he said.

Hiserodt’s secondary market resale business kept him working seven days a week – until he had a massive stroke a year and half ago.
