Study Suggests Naps Could Be Hazardous To Your Health

CBS New York

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A lot of us take a nap during the day and feel better afterward, but could those naps be bad – or even kill us?

As CBS 2’s Dr. Max Gomez reported, a new study in the American Journal of Epidemiology said regular daytime napping may actually be detrimental to your health.

Back in the good old days, we were all supposed to nap. Toddlers didn’t always like it, but parents loved the break.

But once those toddlers grow to become high school and college students, naps are likely to become their favorite pastime. And that often goes for full-grown adults too.

“I love them,” said Hilaire Dolfeyn. “I’ve just had a nap in Central Park.”

“I think it’s great – it’s very refreshing, as long as it’s not too long,” said Zoya Kocur.

And even sleep experts agree that naps are probably good for you.
