Lack of sleep and early death

A new study has found that people who get little exercise and sleep poorly are 57% more likely to die prematurely compared to those who exercise a lot and sleep better as a result.

Bad sleepers also had a 67% higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease and a 45% higher chance of being diagnosed with cancer. The study was carried out by the University College London and the University of Sydney. (The Week 2 July 2021)

  • My comment: I go to the gym three times a week , use a walking machine at 4mph and at a 5% elevation and do it for 45 minutes three times a week And go out for more civilized wallks in between.  I still lay awake most of last night –  but then the England win over Denmark at football yesterday evening was rather exciting,
