The Importance Of Sleep
Recent research finds a link between abnormal sleeping patterns and increased risk of early death.
A new study undertaken by researchers in the UK and Italy suggests that abnormal sleeping pattern may result in an increased risk of premature death. The research took data from studies across Europe, the US and Asia over 25 years, covering more than a million people and over 100,000 deaths. There were two key findings from the research as reported by The Guardian.
It found that those who generally slept for less than six hours a night were 12% more likely to experience a premature death over a period of 25 years than those who consistently got six to eight hours' sleep.
