London: Being a boss could actually protect you against a heart attack rather than cause one! People in most powerful positions are likely to suffer less stress as being in charge offers them a heightened sense of control, a new Harvard study has found. The study upheld the earlier research that showed being bossed around at work increases the risk of a heart attack by 23 per cent. Researchers tested the popular idea that leadership engenders greater stress, the `Daily Mail` reported. Almost 150 bosses recruited by Harvard University researchers had less of the stress hormone cortisol in their saliva than 65 non-leaders. They also suffered less anxiety according to the results of self-reported questionnaires given to the participants who came from various professions and an executive education programme for senior government and military officials. A second study of the leaders then found that people holding in the most powerful positions had lower cortisol levels and anxiety reports than those whose posts were less influential.
