Rise Early, Work Out, Develop Heart Problems? — Dave’s Diary

Hey Ben Franklin! Try Again! Early to bed, early to rise? Not so much, IFf you believe the Japanese!! Getting up very early could be bad for your heart health, according to a recent study of more than 3,000 healthy adults. People who habitually get up before 5am are nearly twice as likely to develop high blood pressure and hardening of the arteries as those who get up two to three hours later. You read that right….twice as likely!

And Jack LaLane wannabe’s—listen up! Early risers who begin their days with vigorous exercise are especially at risk for heart problems. “The results are contrary to the commonly held belief that early birds are in better health,” said the doctor who led the study.
