Negative Factors in Focus
- Excessive Drinking
- Poor Diet
- Too Little Exercise
- Sitting At Least 7 Hours Each Day
- Too Little Sleep
What was interesting was that combining several factors together correlated much higher to sudden death than others.
Karen Kaplan from the LA Times points out:
Some combinations were more deadly than others, the researchers found. Those who blended insufficient exercise with prolonged sitting were 2.42 times more likely to die during the study, and those who were also guilty of sleeping for too many hours were 4.23 times more likely die by the time the study ended.
The synergistic effect of these negative factors on premature death is not to be taken lightly. By decreasing one or more of these factors you may be able to reduce your chances of early death.
The study focused on the dangers of too little sleep as well as too much. There is often too little focus placed on the consequences of getting too much sleep.
