A recent study by researchers from Warwick Medical School said, sleep less is much dangerous in women than in men. Women who sleep less than 8 hours a night have higher risk of heart disease. Studies have also previously stated, sleeping less than 5 hours a night can increase the risk of diabetes and stroke. Instead, have more sleep can reduce the risk of flu. Study leader, Michelle Miller, encourage people to every 7-8 hours sleep a night. "Especially for women," specifically.

Results of this study support the statement that less sleep associated with increased risk cardiovascular. But on this study found a new thing, that is, the difference risk between women and men. Level of 2 chemical substances that are associated with heart trouble has changed dramatically over the length sleep of women. However, this does not apply to men.

Interleukin-6 level, one of a coronary heart disease mark, much lower in women who sleep 8 hours compared with women who slept 7 hours. And, level High-sensitivity C-reactive protein (HS-CRP), a cardiovascular disease risk in the future, is also much higher in women who slept for 5 hours or less. While in men, there is no difference in meaning.

Studies published in the American Journal Sleep, involves more than 4,600 government officials from London. They were aged between 35 and 55, with 73% of them are men. They had asked for information about their number of hours sleep. In addition, they also examined health through screening and blood sampling.

According to the June Davison, a nurse from the heart of the British Heart Foundation, the study found that women who sleep less, likely to have indications of the increase in inflammation. While the same thing does not look at men. Inflammation in the body, said Davison, associated with heart disease and circulatory disturbances in the body.
