Research news: Stress symptoms in midlife predict old-age disability
The recently published prospective cohort study by Dr. Jenni Kulmala and co-workers provides strong evidence that perceived work-related stress in midlife predicts functional limitations and disability later in old age.
The results are published in an international scientific journal:
