good sleep prevents atherosclerosis

Recent research from Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, US, suggests that getting enough sleep at nights connected to the decreased risk of developing atherosclerosis, a condition in which plaque builds up on the inner walls of the arteries.

For the study, a team of researchers used mice model. They found that those rodents who didn’t get enough sleep had the increased risk of developing atherosclerosis.

Dr Swirski, one of the researchers, says: “The identification of a link between...the region of the brain that promotes wakefulness, appetite and how it directly communicates with bone marrow was a surprise. 'We know cells in the bone marrow fight off infection and are linked to cancer and cardiovascular disease. We have more questions that we need answered.”
