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."
