Sleep Less, Live Longer?

Increased Death Rate Associated With Sleeping 8 Hours or More

"Although it’s a common belief that 8 hours of sleep is required for optimal health, a six-year study of more than one million adults ages 30 to 102 has shown that people who get only 6 to 7 hours a night have a lower death rate. Individuals who sleep 8 hours or more, or less than 4 hours a night, were shown to have a significantly increased death rate compared to those who averaged 6 to 7 hours."

That is an excerpt from UCSD. This study is definitely scary for most of you,exclude me because I sleep less than 7 hours per day. pheww..... (^_^)//
