Sick Business Syndrome

I’ve been suffering from some allergy and asthma symptoms recently, and in my Googling I came across something known as “Sick Building Syndrome.” This involves “situations in which building occupants experience acute health and comfort effects that appear to be linked to time spent in a building” according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation.
This got me thinking, what about Sick Business Syndrome?

Here’s what the definition of Sick Business Syndrome might be:

The term “sick business syndrome” (SBS) is used to describe situations in which employees or owners of a business experience acute health and comfort effects that appear to be linked to time spent in the business, but no single cause can be identified. The complaints may be localized in a particular department or function, or may be widespread throughout the business.

Have you experienced Sick Business Syndrome? Is there a cure?
