The careers with the highest 'heart age', which calculates how old a person's heart is compared to their actual age, have been revealed by research by Bupa to coincide with World Heart Day.
People working in accounting, banking and finance have hearts three years older than their owners on average, among the best of all industries.
Those working in medicine had hearts on average two years older than their physical age.
Those doing manual labour had hearts on average 8.7 years older than themselves.
Industries where employers are more likely to help health and wellbeing were found to have healthier hearts than those without.
Providing healthy eating options saw an average decrease of heart age of one year, while employees whose employers offered multiple workplace health initiatives on average had heart ages 1.8 years lower than those with none.
Dr. Fiona Adshead, chief wellbeing and public health officer at Bupa said: "If current trends continue, by 2030 more than 23 million people will die annually from cardiovascular disease, yet this research shows that there is huge potential for employers to help improve their employees' health - not only reaping the benefits of a healthy workforce, but also tackling the heart disease epidemic facing the world.
"When making small changes like providing healthy lunch options can take up to a year off heart age, employers have a great opportunity to support their employees having longer, healthier, happier lives and improve the health of millions of people."
Johanna Ralston, CEO of the World Heart Federation said: "The age on your birth certificate may say one thing, but your heart age could be saying something quite different.
"We urge employers to put a focus on creating heart-healthy environments to help their employees bring down their 'heart age'.
"The places where we live, work and play should not increase our risk of cardiovascular disease, which includes heart disease and stroke."
