A new research, published in the Journal of the American Heart Association, suggests that excessive sleeping could be connected to a higher risk of heart problems and higher mortality risk.
For the study, a team of researchers has analyzed 74 previous studies that included self-reported sleep duration and its quality. They also examined the mortality and cardiovascular health. The studies comprised more than 3 million participants in total.
Chun Shing Kwok, one of the researchers of the study says: “Our findings have important implications as clinicians should have greater consideration for exploring sleep duration and quality during consultations.”
