Less Sleep Puts Women At Risk For Heart Disease

Whether you’ve been out on the town, studying late, or just watching too much telly, now is a good time to start getting the recommended eight hours of sleep. Cause if you don’t, you may be hurting your heart. A new study published in the journal Sleep found that women who reported sleeping less than eight hours had high levels of Interleukin-6, which triggers inflammation and ultimately heart disease. Even those women who sleep seven hours a night are at risk. And as if women didn’t already have it harder than men in a million other ways, add this one to the list because the study didn’t find consistent results with guys. So women, instead of watching another re-run of “Scrubs” or ordering additional drinks at the bar, maybe consider getting some extra shut-eye. [BBC News]
