Consistently satisfying sleep may reduce your chances of dying from a worn out heart by 42%. Epidemiologists at Tulane University followed a huge UK population of 408,802 patients over a 10 year period looking for correlations between sleep patterns and the development of congestive heart failure.
Over those 10 years, 5221 developed heart failure. This disease incidence was 34% lower in those with no daytime sleepiness, 17% lower in those without insomnia, 12% lower for those sleeping 7 to 8 hours a day, and 8% reduced for early risers.
Congestive heart failure can be deadlier than cancer. Its only cure is a heart transplant. Protect your ticker by sleeping soundly and exercising consistently.
