Sleep for more than 10 hours will increase the risk of cardiovascular disease


Sleep is an important link to maintain the life activities of the body, plays a leading role in life and plays an important role in human health.


Adequate sleep can not only promote the growth and development of human body, strengthen immunity, but also help the body to fight aging and maintain a good mental state. Generally speaking, the average sleep time of adults should not be less than8 hours, but more than 10 hours, is considered as "excessive sleep".

Recently, a study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association found that insufficient sleep, too much sleep, frequent siesta in the daytime and poor sleep quality would increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases such as coronary heart disease, angina pectoris and myocardial infarction.


Meanwhile, a study in the Lancet found that sleepMore than 10 hours have a negative impact on health and life expectancy.

Therefore, too short or too long sleep is not good for our health. This is why most people sleep late at weekends to make up for sleep. Although they have slept for a long time, they do not feel relieved of fatigue, and even feel more tired and dizzy!

Hazards of excessive sleep:

1. Vulnerable to cardiovascular disease

Excessive sleep will increase the level of cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol in the blood, and at the same time, it will increase the risk of hypertension, hyperlipidemia, atherosclerosis, coronary heart disease and other diseases.


Research published in the British Medical Journal shows that sleep every dayOver 10 hours, the risk of death from coronary heart disease increased by 23%.

2. Increase the risk of death

A survey shows that the time of sleep every dayPeople who have 8 hours of sleep have the lowest mortality rate, while those who sleep less than 6 hours or more than 10 hours will increase the probability of death, regardless of whether men or women have the same result.


So for sleep, it is not the better to sleep more. Too short sleep is harmful to health, and too much sleep will also endanger life.

3. Induce diabetes

Long term lack of sleep will lead to an increased risk of diabetes. On the contrary, too long sleep does more harm to the body than insufficient sleep.


Research shows that if you don't sleep enoughSix hours, the risk of diabetes is about two times higher than that of normal sleepers (7-8 hours). If the sleep time exceeds 8 hours, the risk of diabetes will increase three times.

4. Weight gain


If you sleep too long at ordinary times, you will reduce the time of exercise, and the energy that your body consumes will not be consumed by the body in time, so it will form fat accumulation, leading to weight gain.

5. Make people stupid

The time of the day is limited. If the sleep time is too long, the waking time and activity time will be reduced, and the human brain will become lazier and lazier, resulting in a decline in brain cell activity.


In the long run, people's memory will decline, and the body and brain's reaction will also decline, resulting in people becoming more and more stupid.

Sleep is about everyone's physical and mental health, and also about everyone's quality of life. We should keep regular work and rest, do not stay up late and do not lie in bed, ensure quality sleep, and stay away from cardiovascular diseases.
