A meta-analysis of 12 studies involving 116,000 17- to 70-year-olds found that job stress was not significantly associated with higher odds of developing breast, colorectal, lung or prostate cancers. Finnish scientists said that research that has shown a link between work stress and cancer could have done so by chance or because of factors not involving work stress. The findings appear in the journal BMJ.
