Go to work or stay home

Q: When I'm sick should I stay home or go to work?

A: Stay home when you are sick.

Recent study: Men who went to work despite feeling ill were twice as likely to develop serious heart problems as men who called in sick. The mental stress of working when unwell may raise the risk of heart trouble -- or it may be that men who ignore minor illnesses also are more likely to ignore symptoms of a heart condition. Either way, staying at home helps you recover more quickly and lowers the chance of infecting coworkers
