Staying up late may be bad for your health

[KARE 11, May 2, 2018] Love staying up late but have to get up early? A new study suggests it’s not only bad for your health, it could also be deadly! Researchers say people who consider themselves “night owls” face a higher risk of dying prematurely than “morning people”.
