In reply to Sleep Deprivation improves longevity, posted by tessellated on October 10, 2006, at 12:25:41

Well, that would be one less thing for me to worry about. I *feel* like I get enough sleep, but it's not the supposedly required 8 or 9 hours, so I worry.

I'd like to know what the actual numbers are behind the longevity assertion, though:

> The Cancer Prevention Study II even showed that people with serious insomnia or who only get 3.5 hours of sleep per night, live longer than people who get more than 7.5 hours.

Also, one fact left out of that article is that for every hour less that you sleep per night, you gain more than two extra weeks per year of wakeful living. That means that a 7-hour sleeper can actually live more than A YEAR's worth of extra waking time over her adult life than her 8-hour-sleeping twin does, even if they die on the same day. You can do a lot in a year.
