Dr. Mike: Poor Sleep In Women Linked to Heart Disease Study

Posted: Updated:

According to a recent study, there is a direct correlation between women - lack of sleep - and heart disease.

In men, this was not an issue.  Why? Dr. Mike says it may be due to the increased levels of testosterone in men and estrogen levels going down in woman as they age.

Bottom line: If you are chronically sleep-deprived, you may not live as long.

Dr. Mike explains.
