According to a new research of seniors from the American Heart Association, daytime snoozing may raise the danger of cardiovascular disease (AHA).

The study, which was published at the end of July, examined 12,268 Swedish twins to determine if there was a correlation between sleep patterns and heart disease.

Participants who slept less than 7 hours a night and napped more than 30 minutes throughout the day had a 47% higher risk of cardiovascular disease than others.

There may be a correlation between taking naps throughout the workday and developing heart problems, but this study cannot draw any firm conclusions.

Beyond the possible drawbacks of napping, those who slept seven to nine hours a night were least likely to develop heart problems.

+ + +

Those who slept less than that increased their risk of cardiovascular disease by 14%, while those who slept more than that increased their risk by 10%.

Snoring, insomnia, and identifying as a night owl all contribute to a less restful night's sleep, which in turn increases the risk of cardiovascular disease.
