Int. J. Environ. Res. Public Health 2020, 17(2), 562; https://doi.org/10.3390/ijerph17020562 Abstract Work-related stress can induce a break in homeostasis by placing demands on the body that are met by the activation of two different systems, the hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis and the sympathetic nervous system. Night-shift work alters the body’s exposure to the natural light–dark schedule and disrupts circadian (daily)...
