Have a good sleep and override your genetic heart risk!
Good sleep pattern can reduce the risk of stroke and heart disease even in those who are genetically prone. A recent study with 385 292 participants from the United Kingdom showed that those with a healthy sleep score can reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke by about a third. Sleep pattern was scored from 0-5 on a scale and those with a score of 5 were considered to have a healthy sleep score.
The benefits were noted in those with low, intermediate and high genetic risk.
