Health data of more than 470000 people in eight countries and regions, including Japan, the United States, Sweden and the United Kingdom. These data span 7 to 25 years. After their analysis, they concluded that if they often slept less than 6 hours a night and slept uneasily, the probability of suffering from heart disease or dying of heart disease was 48%, and the probability of suffering from stroke or dying of stroke was high.
how long does it take to relieve sub-health and healthy sleep?
Francesco Cappuccio, a member of the research team, said: “the habit of going to bed late and getting up early is equivalent to planting a ticking time bomb for your health. You need to take immediate action to reduce the risk of these deadly diseases.”
Another panelist, Michelle Miller, said that chronic sleep deprivation also increases the risk of high blood pressure, diabetes and obesity.
sleep long and live forever
Cappuccio said that in modern society, many people lose the balance between work and life and sacrifice precious sleep time to complete their work, “which will significantly increase the risk of stroke or cardiovascular diseases, such as heart disease.”
However, Cappuccio also reminded the public that it is not good to sleep too long. Regular continuous sleep of more than 9 hours may be a sign of cardiovascular disease.
he thinks that sleeping about 7 hours every night is the most appropriate
“By ensuring about 7 hours of sleep every night, you can protect your future health and reduce the risk of chronic diseases. (sleep and health) the correlation is very obvious in our study: only by sleeping enough can you stay healthy and live longer,” capucheau said.
anorexia is pathogenic
Ellen Mason, senior nurse of the British Heart Foundation, praised the research of capuchin and others for further proving that sleep is vital to health, and also reminding people of the possible harm of insufficient sleep.
“Although sleep deprivation is related to heart and circulatory system diseases, people do not fully understand various reasons,” Mason said. “When people lack sleep, hormone levels and chemicals in their bodies may change, which will affect the heart and circulatory system after a period of time.”
Mason said that many factors lead to lack of sleep in modern people, such as the increasingly easy access to the Internet, the increase of TV channels, worries about financial situation, and longer working hours.
