Insomnia kills men, but not women


A recent survey revealed that between insomnia and premature mortality there is a close connection, but only in men.
According to researchers at the University College of Medicine in Pennsylvania, womens' bodies can bear more sleepless nights, without having any effect on their life-expectancy, reports the Daily Mail.
A Study that was done on 1,000 women and 741 men, held for 10 and respectively 14 years showed that men who suffer from insomnia pose a risk of premature mortality for four times higher than those who do not have problems sleeping.
Lack of sleep affects not only adults but also children or teenagers. A U.S. study also showed that teens who slept less than 8 hours a night are more likely to eat fast food, which has a strong impact on their health status in the long term.
