Are you a night owl or an early bird? Researchers said it could make a difference health wise.

A Northwestern University study found that those who stay up late but struggle to drag themselves out of bed in the morning are more at risk of dying sooner than early risers.

Scientists said the difference held true even after adjusting for expected health problems in night owls, such as metabolic dysfunction and heart disease.
