A new research published in the journal Neurology found that individuals who regularly sleep for longer than 8 hours a day are at a higher threat for stroke than people who sleep 6 to 8 hours daily.
The scientists studied virtually 10,000 individuals aged 42 to 81 for almost 10 years, tape-recording how long they slept each night and if they had any strokes. The participants who slept the most had a danger of stroke 46 percent higher than average, and their stroke risk was double that of those who slept 6 to 8 hours a night.
In the meantime, the research study authors keep in mind that more research study is needed, since the research just proves connection, not causation, between the two. However the researchers likewise keep in mind that oversleeping might signify other illness, such as depression, cancer, or neurological deterioration.
