I disagree that this article indicates " Sleep Deprivation improves longevity"

Here is what it says:

"There is really no evidence that the average 8-hour sleeper functions better than the average 6- or 7-hour sleeper," Kripke says, on the basis of his ongoing psychiatric practice with patients along with research, including the large study of a million adults"

6-8 hours seems normal for most people & I do not see where it is suggested sleep deprivation is a good thing. Sleeping more than you need to may not improve functioning. Amount of sleep needed is highly personal, so if someone needs 8 and another person can function as well on 6, does this really tell us anything about sleeping less or more having benefits ?
