Not Getting Enough Sleep Can Actually Kill You

A new study reveals inadequate amounts of sleep could lead to a heart attack.

UPI reports University of Pennsylvania researchers found patients with sleep apnea had twice the risk of a heart attack.

Likewise, the gloomy odds were similar for the risk of heart failure or stroke.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea, or OSA, occurs when a person has stopped or reduced breathing at least 15 times per hour while sleeping.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than one-third of Americans don't get enough sleep.

Since sleep apnea is a risk factor for stroke, medical professionals recommend easing the condition using CPAP therapy.
