Play Roulette with Sleep Patterns, Pay with Your Life: The Undisclosed Heart and Cancer Risks of Irregular Slumber

Researchers at Monash University have discovered a link between irregular sleep patterns and higher risks of overall mortality, particularly cancer and heart disease.

The results showed individuals with low sleep regularity had a 41% chance of maintaining consistent sleep or waking times for two consecutive days, compared to 61% for those with average regularity. These irregular sleepers were also 46% more likely to die within seven years. Of the deceased, a significant number had low sleep regularity and died from cancer or heart disease.
