Daily Naps Could Raise Risk of Death

A study has shown that daily naps taken by older women increase their risk of dying. The study found that Caucasian women who took an afternoon nap were 58% more likely to die from heart problems.

They were 44% more likely to die from any cause, and 60% more likely to die from reasons not relating to heart problems or cancer. The results contradict previous studies which advocate afternoon naps for added health benefits.

The study's co-author, Katie L. Stone, said: "Since excessive sleep suggests that night time sleep is disrupted, interventions to treat sleep disorders and improve sleep quality in older women may reduce mortality risk."

    • i always thought the unflinching support trump had from a wide swath of conspiracy theorists was one of the low-key weirdest things about this election.  even your "government has been infiltrated by reptoids" venom-type people backed him.


    • Hillary was a typical politician. No more no less. I was not a fan of hers.

      False equivelancy to compare her to Trump. He is an awful human being. Completely obvious to anyone with just an average sense of character judgement.
    • Sources Tell Us "Alabama recruited a shiny toy but (Lane) Kiffin never really knew what to do with it. I don't worry about the talent at all. He could be an all-pro. I just need to know if he loves football." -- NFC general manager NFL Comparison Julius Thomas Bottom Line Howard has struggled to live up to hype that has come with his play-making ability while at Alabama, but some scouts put the blame on the staff and scheme. He has elite athletic traits and raw talent, but must add polish to go along with those attributes. Should become substantially more productive as a pro, but the difference between "potential weapon" and "elite tight end" will likely be tied to his desire and overall football character. -Lance Zierlein http://www.nfl.com/draft/2017/profiles/o.j.-howard?id=2557856
