NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A new study suggests that women in stressful jobs are at a higher risk for serious health problems.

The study, which followed 22,000 women working in a diverse range of fields over 10 years, found that females in stressful professions have a 70 percent higher chance of heart attack and 40% increased occurrences of other cardiovascular traumas than women with less pressure at work.

Holistic counselor Erika Weber joined The Couch on Thursday to tackle these topics.
