Washington: Even moderate drinking may be bad for your health as it could disrupt your sleep, say researchers.In a study when college students drank relatively low doses of alcohol, they got less sleep than they did on nights when they didn’t drink at all, according to the researchers.While those who drank high doses of alcohol did not experience a reduction in sleep time, they did feel tired the next day.The researchers said the study, which used wristband devices to measure how long students slept in their own beds, is the first to show alcohol consumption can reduce overall sleep time, Live Science reported.Previous studies conducted in sleep labs have found alcohol consumption interferes with the second half of sleep, but not overall sleep time.According to study researcher Pierce Geoghegan, of Trinity College Dublin, in Ireland, the findings add weight to the evidence that alcohol should not be used as a sleep aid.While alcohol does help you fall asleep, the new study shows both low and high doses can disrupt it — low doses interfere with the amount of sleep you get, and high doses interfere with the quality, Geoghegan said.
