Oct. 21, 2022 – Including how long a person sleeps in a heart health score was able to predict heart disease risk among older adults, results of a new study show. 

The study supports the American Heart Association’s recent decision to make sleep duration “an essential component for ideal heart and brain health.” 

“Sleep seems to be the first thing that people squeeze out of their schedules when they are busy, but making sleep a priority is vital for health and well-being,” says lead author Nour Makarem, PhD, of the Mailman School of Public Health at Columbia University in New York City.
