Summary: There are the obvious jobs that are a high risk for your health, but some jobs that are bad for your health may surprise you.

Everyone knows that nurses and doctors are exposed to a high risk of disease and illnesses so their jobs are inherently unhealthy, especially when comparing it to a lawyer or IT specialist that spends their days in an office. LEVO examined the Occupational Information Network to measure the O*NET of six health risks against 974 occupations. The six health risks are exposure to hazardous conditions, exposure to disease and infection, exposure to contaminants, exposure to radiation, risk of minor burns, bites, etc., and time spent sitting.
