We know that sleep deprivation can cause major health problems, but too much sleep has serious consequences. We tell you how it affects your body for more than 8 hours and why it should stop working.
Recommended hours for Sleeping every night is always between 6 and 8 hours. But be careful, because sleeping more than these hours causes a greater risk of death and cardiovascular disease, according to a global study published in the European Heart Journal.
Data from 21 countries in seven different regions of the world have been studied and it has been proven that people who have slept more than 8 hours had a greater risk of suffering more serious cardiovascular problems, for example, stroke or heart failure, and the risk of death is 41% higher than for other people.
It is possible that many of these people are sleeping more because they have other great circumstances that can cause them to sleep for several hours, but in the implementation of this measure they still increase the risk cardiovascular disease or mortality.
However, this does not only affect the hour you slept during the day, but on even in time, as explains Chuangshi Wang, the person who led the study, who is one of the doctoral students of the Medical Academy in Beijing, China:
"Day care was associated with an increased risk of major cardiovascular events and fatalities in those with more than six hours at night, but not for those who slept less than 6 hours a night""Wang explained.
Although the cause and effect can not be directly proven, this has also been proven Sleeps less than 6 hours daily increases the risk of 9%, even with the risk of developing a disease, compared with people who have been sleeping between 6 and 8 hours.
The study was carried out on the basis of 116,632 adults between 35 and 70 years, who had been monitoring for almost 8 years. The results were as follows: out of every 1000 people who had been sleeping 6 to 8 hours (recommended), 7.8 developed cardiovascular disease or died each year compared to 9.4 people who slept at night for six hours or less.
According to science, it may be crucial that weekends sleep well if they do not suffer from anxiety

People who are They sleep between 8 and 9 hours, 8.4 per 1000 people developed cardiovascular disease or died annually, and increased with an increase in hourly sleep. People who are They burned for 9 to 10 hours, 10.4 per 1000 people, and those who slept for more than 10 hours, 14.8 of every 1000 people developed cardiovascular disease or died each year.
