Former Health Secretary Paulyn Jean B. Rosell Ubial and Johnson & Johnson (J&J) Inc. Voice Your Care Project Lead Karlo Patron said BPO workers are prone to respiratory and cardiovascular diseases. Ubial disclosed that BPO workers are more susceptible to diseases, since they are exposed to cold surroundings, and often lack sleep due to working graveyard shifts. These diseases usually start as simple cough and cold and become full-blown respiratory diseases such as asthma. Many symptoms, Ubial said, unfortunately are “silent” ones, but whose repercussions in later life can be fatal.
