LACK OF SLEEP 'RAISES RISK OF STROKE, HEART ATTACK'

ANSA) - Rome, February 8 - Lack of sleep raises the risk of dying of a stroke or heart attack, according to an Italian researcher working in the UK.

Sleeping less than six hours a night, going to bed too late or waking up too early and other sleep disturbances are a "time bomb" for human health, Francesco Cappuccio of Warwick University says in a study published in the European Heart Journal.

Cappuccio's team monitored the health of more than 470,000 people in eight countries over 7-25 years and found that sleeping less than six hours a night is associated with a 48% higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease and a 15% increase in the risk of strokes.

This confirmed the findings of a previous study of Cappuccio's in the journal Sleep, which said not getting enough sleep raised the prospect of an early death by 12%.

Sleeping too little triggers the production of hormones such as stress hormones and other damaging chemical substances which can "poison" the cardiovascular system, Cappuccio maintains.

But too much sleep may also bring health risks, he adds.

"By making sure you sleep around seven hours a night, you'll protect your future health and reduce the risk of chronic diseases," Cappuccio says.

"Sleep as much as you need to stay healthy and live longer," the Italian researcher recommends. photo: actress Tilda Swinton in 'Sleeping Beauty' performance in Rome in 1996.
