Now a study has been released that show that people who get less than six hours or more than nine hours of sleep per night have an increased risk of dying prematurely. That has been shown to apply to about 20 percent of the population in the United States and Britain. The study was conducted in Italy and published in the scientific journal Sleep, and reported that the relation between lack of sleep and illness is due to a series of hormonal and metabolic mechanisms. Oversleeping is more likely to be an effect of illness, rather than a cause, scientists who conducted the study said.
If in fact there is a link between sleep problems and poor health, it’s all the more reason to get proper medical treatment. When doctors and medical specialists address the issue early – in the first weeks after the accident – the chances of recovery and a good outcome go up significantly.
This is another reason to not ignore or downplay a car crash. Even though you may not feel you’ve been hurt badly or you’re sure that fuzzy-headed feeling will clear up soon, it’s not worth taking chances.
