Sleeping Too Much Worse Than Sleeping Too Little: Science News I Can Actually Use

According to an article on Gawker today,  there’s a new study out that says sleeping for more than nine hours a night makes you 30% more likely to die before you reach 65. Sleeping less than six hours a night only makes you 12% more likely to die prematurely.

Put on a fresh pot of coffee, and start cuing up the Tivo – my insomnia has finally been validated by science. Thanks, science.
