This I didn’t know. Too much sleeping is bad? My my…..look at this link. Oh my, does that mean I need to sleep less? Wait, I already sleep 6 hours a day anyway. No problem here.
Contrary to popular belief, people who sleep six to seven hours a night live longer, and those who sleep eight hours or more die younger, according to the largest study ever conducted on the subject.
The study used data from a massive survey conducted by the American Cancer Society between 1982 and 1988. Women sleeping eight, nine and 10 hours a night had a 13 percent, 23 percent and 41 percent greater risk of dying, respectively, than those who slept seven hours, the study found. Men sleeping eight, nine and 10 hours a night had a 12 percent, 17 percent and 34 percent greater risk of dying within the study period.
