According to a study by Swedish and US researchers, people who are under 65-years-old and get less than five hours sleep on the weekend had an increased risk of death.

They found that people who regularly slept about five hours or less a night, including on weekends, saw a higher mortality rate compared with those who regularly got seven hours. There is also no risk of early death.

According to new research, getting extra sleep on the weekend can undo the damage of failing to get enough during the week, ultimately helping you live longer.

The centre may also give some relief in excise duty rates to give immediate relief to consumers. In addition to this, the Value-Added Tax on the two auto fuels varies from State to State.


However, those who slept five hours or less and then slept in on the weekends, did not have a different mortality rate than normal sleepers.

"The duration of sleep is important for longevity", said Thorbjorn Akersted of the Stress Research Institute in Sweden, quoted by The Guardian.

Bets are off for people over the age of 65, where there was no link between the amount of sleep and higher risk of death. They did account for other factors influencing sleep, such as alcohol and coffee consumption, smoking habits, shift work and more.

After vote, Ireland set to end abortion ban
While it's technically illegal in New South Wales and Queensland, it is lawful if a woman's mental or physical health is at risk. A woman pushes her bicycle past a Pro-Choice mural ahead of a 25th May referendum on abortion law, in Dublin , Ireland .


However, research has often overlooked what happens on your days off, said sleep researcher Torbjörn Åkerstedt, co-author of a study published in the Journal of Sleep Research.

The team pointed out that they only assessed individuals aged 65 or under, not bearing the sleeping habits and mortality rates of those older in mind. However, those who catch up with sleep during the weekends and for that period sleep for 8 hours or more per day do not have an increased risk of premature death.

Previous studies have found a U?shaped relationship between mortality and (weekday) sleep duration.
