Researchers have found that getting seven or more hours of sleep can also combat heart disease. A team in the Netherlands did a study where they tracked heart disease and strokes in more than 14,000 men and woman for over a decade. By the end of the study, 600 individuals suffered either a stroke or heart disease, while 129 died. The study concluded that those who lived healthier lifestyles - such as exercising, eating healthy, drinking alcohol in moderation and not smoking - were less likely to die. Research also showed that combining a good night's sleep with the healthy lifestyle could reduce dying from stroke or heart disease by 67 per cent. Doireann Maddock, senior cardiac nurse at the British Heart Foundation, says, "This research shows that combining a good night's sleep with other healthy lifestyle choices can reduce your risk of heart disease, but troubled sleepers should not be alarmed - this study doesn't mean sleepless nights cause heart disease... but if lack of sleep is becoming a problem, make sure you have a chat to your doctor."
