Less than 5 Hours of Sleep Linked to Disease Risk


💤 Sleeping 5 hours or less per night?


New research on the health of 70,000 men and women in their 50s, 60s, and 70s, showed a link between 5 hours or less per night and disease risk.


Compared with those who slept 7 hours per night, those who slept only 5:


⬆️ were 20% more likely to be diagnosed with a chronic disease at age 50


⬆️ were 40% more likely to be diagnosed with 2 or more chronic diseases over 25 years


⬆️ had a 25% increased risk of death over 25 years



The study was published in PLOS Medicine. It relates to the series we’re doing this month on circadian rhythms and is a good reminder of how important it is to get a good night’s sleep!
