A new study reveals the importance of a good night’s sleep.

Researchers used image techniques to look at the blood vessels of nearly 4 thousand middle aged men and women.

People who slept less than six hours a night, were 27 percent more likely to have signs of heart disease than those who slept seven or eight hours.

Poor quality of sleep also increased the risk of heart disease.
