There’s some good news for people with insomnia – your lack of sleep is probably not going to kill you, reports the BBC.

A new report published by the journal Science Direct says there is no link between insomnia and early death.

Scientists reviewed 17 studies, which covered close to 37 million people, to compile their results.

This new report goes against what the NHS says, which claims that as well as putting people at risk of obesity, heart disease and type 2 diabetes, that insomnia shortens life expectancy.
