  • Those who slept for ten hours were 30 per cent more likely to die prematurely than those who slept for seven hours

They analyzed the data from 74 studies which contained information on the sleep quality and habits of three million people (from 1970 to 2017).

The researchers found that participants who reported sleeping for more than eight hours a night had a greater mortality and cardiovascular risk than those who slept for less than seven hours.

People sleeping for ten hours were 30 per cent more likely to die prematurely than those who slept seven hours - 56 per cent more likely to die from a stroke and 49 per cent more likely to die from cardiovascular disease.

However, it was generally thought that too little sleep was far worse than too much.

Researchers from the University of East Anglia, Leeds University, and Manchester concluded that people who sleep over eight hours a night saw an increase in heart disease by 44%.

Researchers said underlying diseases could be the cause of regular lie ins - and they urged Global Positioning System to check the sleep patterns of patients during visits in a bid to save their lives.

Dr Kwok added: 'Abnormal sleep is a marker of elevated cardiovascular risk and greater consideration should be given in exploring both duration and sleep quality during patient consultations. The researchers admit that the study was limited because the duration of sleep was self-reported.

Adults who usually sleep for less than six hours are also at risk of dying. The amount and quality of our sleep is complex.

"There are cultural, social, psychological, behavioural, pathophysiological and environmental influences on our sleep such as the need to care for children or family members, irregular working shift patterns, physical or mental illness, and the 24-hour availability of commodities in modern society". "If excessive sleep patterns are found, particularly prolonged durations of eight hours or more, then clinicians should consider screening for adverse cardiovascular risk factors and obstructive sleep apnea, which is a serious sleep disorder that occurs when a person's breathing is interrupted during sleep".
