Chronic lack of sleep can negatively affect our immune cells, which may increase certain health risks.

A new study from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York City found that frequent late nights

Losing an hour and a half of sleep every night can lead to inflammatory disorders and cardiovascular disease. and headache problem

Journal of Experimental Medicine on Wed., published September 21, 2022 - finds that chronic lack of sleep can affect a person's immune cells

Ongoing sleep deprivation due to frequent late night sleeps can promote a lack of inflammation in the body and can contribute to inflammation.

Co-principal investigator Cameron McAlpine, assistant professor of medicine (cardiology) at Mount Sinai, said.

The increase of inflammation makes you more susceptible to a whole bunch of problems, in particular cardiovascular diseases." An interview.

Lead author Philip Swirsky, PhD, director of the Cardiovascular Research Institute at Icahn Mount Sinai, said in a news release.

This work stresses the importance of adults sleeping seven to eight consecutive hours to help prevent inflammation and disease,

Researchers said the study begins to identify mechanisms in the body that link sleep and immunological health over the long term.

Study shows that in humans and mice, disturbed sleep can affect the rate of cell programming and production of immune cells

This can then cause immune cells to lose their effectiveness in protecting against disease. when your immunity is low

It can also affect the rate at which these cells are produced and potentially make the infection worse.
