Study: Older adults who nap may increase Alzheimer’s risk
Do you take a lot of naps during the day? A new study finds that could be a problem.
Scientists tracked sleep data in patients for two weeks.
Researchers found older adults who napped at least once a day or more than an hour a day were 40% more likely to develop Alzheimer’s.
The results bolster the findings of a previous study that found napping two hours a day raised the risk of cognitive impairment.
