A study carried out by researchers in Canada establishes that people, who consume sleeping pills, increase their chances of giving in by almost one third in comparison to those who do not take them.
Laval University's School of Psychology in Quebec researchers found that mortality rates in people consuming sleeping pills is higher than in non-consumers of sleeping pills.
The leader of the study, Genevieve Belleville, as quoted by the Daily Mail said that the medicines should not be taken as candies and consuming them did not ever mean that they were safe.
Dr. Belleville and her contemporaries gauged 12 years of data on over 12,000 from the nation.
Pills that had been used varied from the ones provide over-the-counter and the prescribed ones.
After considering alcohol and tobacco consumption, physical activeness and depression, it was found by researchers that the drug increased the chances of death by almost 36%.
Dr. Belleville said that pill takers in higher likelihood succumbed to every form of illness.
Talking of the strong effects that these pills and other anti-anxiety drugs have upon body, she said that a person’s consciousness and alertness becomes passive after consuming these pills, which therefore, increases the likelihood of becoming a victim to a number of accidents.
