Bannister here, let’s continue
to Think Healthy.
Today we talk about the chances
of getting dementia.
Communications published a major study.
Basically, the study found
that people over the age of 50–who
slept less than six hours per night–had
a HIGHER RISK of
it was compared to people
who slept around 7 hours per night!
The study looked at people
over a 25 period.
And it found that the risk of dementia
went up for all sorts of people.
So, look, the study suggests
that when we sleep less,
many functions of our body are disrupted.
And THIS increases
the chances of getting dementia.
BUT, this does not mean that
if you sleep less, you’re
going to get dementia.
Our bodies are extremely complicated
and many times you’re going to find that
there are more than one
contributing factors for a disease.
So, sleep more if you can!
Rest more if you can!
don’t get yourself into panic
if you’re sleeping less
than 7 hours a night.
talk to your health care provider!
