Found the main danger of lack of sleep

Doctors from the USA have shown that regular sleep deprivation significantly increases the probability of death from stroke people suffering from cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. A study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association, and briefly about it reports the American heart Association.

Experts recommend suffering with heart disease and diabetes to sleep at least six hours a day. Otherwise, the risk of death as a result of the stroke two times higher than in healthy people, diverting to sleep more than six hours a day.

To such conclusions the authors came randomly selecting 1344 adults (mean age 49 years, 42% men). Among them, scientists have identified risk (high body mass index, cholesterol and blood sugar, high blood pressure), to include 39.2% of the participants, which were followed for 16.6 years.

At the completion of the study, 22 percent of the patients died. It turned out that the people who are at risk, but pay sleep more than six hours a day, 1.5 times more often the healthy are at risk of death from stroke. If sick pay to sleep less than six hours a day, then this probability is increased in two times.

The study authors note that Americans are more and more attention is given to leisure, recreation and work than sleep. According to experts, it provokes the development of diseases of the cardiovascular system.
