• Don't think much of it at all. My sleep depends on what I did that day and what I have to do the next. Sometimes I may only get 4 hours and I'm good other times (late night) I may sleep for 10. It all works out in the end.
  • I think...oh well, im gonna sleep 8-10 hours a day. If I die a few years early then ill willingly do it. ...besides it may have been a study but honestly...I dont see the connection between 8 or 6 hours of sleep being the cause.
  • I guess I am going to live until I am old. I only need and only get 6 hrs per night
  • Let me sleep on it.
  • I'm skeptical, after all this time of doctors and researchers telling us to get a lot of sleep, suddenly it's detrimental, how?
  • There are three kinds of statistics. Lies, Damn lies, and uh...the kind you make up.
  • A little surprised. I sleep 6 1/2 hours a night.
  • Tell that to Rip Van Winkle.
  • I think that I see no link here. If this is like most studies the actual conclusion wasn't quite so bombastic. It probably read like this: This study indicates that a correlation may exist between hours of sleep per night and lifespan. However due to the number of variables we cannot say this conclusively. Then some moron journalist got a hold of it and off we go.
  • what about 12 hours?
  • I've never heard of this before. I'd have to see the rezults from the study. In order to make a personal opinion about it.
  • I'm a goner, then.
  • idk last i heard your supposed to get about 8 hrs of sleep in order to be healthy. and 10 hrs or more is when it starts to affect your health....but who knows im just a kid. haha
  • I know that children need more sleep than adults, so what you where told as a kid about how much sleep to get may no longer apply. Of course sleep is good for you, but everything in moderation. Excessive sleep is a symptom of depression Correlation does not prove causation. I think it's more likely that its certain conditions that affect the quality of sleep that cause the earlier time of death, and that those who have the condition sleep longer because they don't feel rested.
