I've just seen an item on BBC text saying that people - especially elderly men - who do not get enough deep sleep are at risk of developing high blood pressure and thus may become more liable to strokes & etc.

The item ended up saying that elderly people are recommended to "prioritise sleep".

Any idea how this may be achieved ? All suggestions welcome. (I was going to put "all sensible suggestions" but after all, this is Jet Blast !)

Another bunch of 'experts' have today declared that chocolate is good for your heart.

Who funds these feckwits?

Don't tell me, I know.

Trick is, to have/do everything that's 'bad' for you and everything that's 'good' for you. Balances out eventually. Works for me:ok:

chocolate is good for your heart

It is. It's the sugar what isn't. . That horrible over-sweetened stuff is lethal.

90% cooking chocolate is great.

Shagging one's brains out is Nature's sleeping pill especially
the older one gets. One can usually obtain a full 6 to 7 hours
of good quality snoozing after an intense workout.

Why bother with any of this nonesence?,for what? to drag out a couple of extra years on this mudball? bollix to that.
I used to have great respect for science whether medical or otherwise,not now, to much of this 'New research indicates' pimped around the news channels when research grant time comes round these days.

Not to be young again Mr G-C that's for sure, this is a ghastly time to be a youngin I think,unless yer Da is a banker of course.:rolleyes:

Think it could be the 'eld "chicken & egg" argument.

People who die young, may have problems that cause them not to sleep.

Which isn't the same as saying people who can't sleep die young.

If ya' see what I mean. :)

Try not to sleep.
After some training, that should do the trick.

rh200....just you wait another six years or so mate - you'll be
out cold for hours after only 5 minutes of heavy grunting and
groaning!

Not really Magnus - to cater to those female sensuality times is why Nature
has endowed us with the monstrously humungous morning piss-horn! :E

Indeed, Slasher, nothing wrong with exercising the old morning glory. It's more the 6 or 7 hours quality snoozing afterwards that's the problem, generally with the employer!

Women have the advantage that sometimes they can have sex and sleep at the same time:(
