Too Much Sleep As Dangerous As Too Little
Sleeping too much, just like sleeping too little, could be linked to a person's risk of an early death, a new British study indicates.
Scientists found those individuals who increased the number of hours they slept per night from seven to eight hours or more were more than twice as likely to die within 11-17 years as those who kept sleeping for seven. They were more likely to die from non-cardiovascular diseases.
Francesco Cappuccio, an author of the study, said adults should aim for seven hours of shuteye a night.
