For the study, the researchers examined the sleeping habits of more than 116,000 aged between 35 and 70 years enrolled in the Prospective Urban Rural Epidemiology (PURE) study.

Having analyzed the received data, the researchers concluded that people who slept 9–10 hours were 17% more likely to die or develop cardiovascular conditions. People who regularly slept for more than 10 hours had a 41% risk to die prematurely or develop cardiovascular conditions.

Corresponding author Dr. Salim Yusuf, the principal investigator of the PURE study and a professor of medicine at McMaster, comments the results of the study: “The general public should ensure that they get about six to eight hours of sleep a day. On the other hand, if you sleep too much regularly, say more than nine hours a day, then you may want to visit a doctor to check your overall health.”
