Researchers also said in research that sleeping too late in the day also increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases rapidly.
Some people, especially housewives, prefer to sleep or take a nap sometime during the day (Power Nap) after getting free from the day’s work. By doing this the body gets energy and gets supercharged to work again. But for a long time, it has been a debate among scientists that how long is gold in the day beneficial for health?
Now the European Society of Cardiology Congress has answered this question in the new research. The Society has suggested people not to sleep more than 1 hour a day (Power Nap) because doing so calls for many serious health-related diseases. The European Society says that those who take long naps in the day increases the risk of heart disease and type-2 diabetes by 34%. Not only this, but the risk of accidental death of such people in puberty is also 30 percent more than others.
Till now believed to be beneficial for health
Prior to this research, health experts considered sleeping in the afternoon or taking a nap for some health was effective. In many Western and European countries, it is permissible to take a nap while working in the office, because there they see it as a way to increase the productivity of the employees. However, this new research by Chinese scientists presented at the European Society of Cardiology Congress states that keeping a power nap for more than 60 minutes can also be harmful to your health.
Challenge the benefits of nap
Dr. Zhi Pan, professor and lead author of this study at the Guangzhou Medical University, said that taking a few days of nap time is a very common habit and is considered a healthy habit. Pan said that it is also believed that napping leads to a qualitative improvement in our work performance. But our study challenges these myths related to ‘sleep date’. Earlier studies have shown sleep in the first day to be the cause of cardiovascular diseases, even accidental death. But our new research also covers the duration of nighttime sleep as the major factors of heart disease.
Nap risk of swelling
Does Professor Pan say why taking a nap for more than 60 minutes is dangerous for health? It has just been researched. But early results have pointed to some serious health challenges. Prior studies have claimed that taking naps during the day can cause internal inflammation in the body, which is fatal to the heart. Researchers studied cardiac arrest, stroke and other health reports of more than 3 lakh people and found that among people who die prematurely from such diseases, their sleeping habits and other lifestyle-related things that affect their health also quickly Caused death.
22 percent more risk in women
Research findings have shown that it is more dangerous for women to take a nap than men because whenever they nap for more than an hour per day, their risk of dying prematurely increases by 22 percent. However, studies regarding napping are still unclear as some of them claim that it is not good for heart health while others suggest that napping may reduce the risk of a heart attack.
