Either Too Much or Too Little Sleep Increases Your Risk

Dr. Rohit Arora of the NHANES database and the Chicago Medical School stated that either less than 6 hours or more than 8 hours of sleep per night can double your risk of heart disease. The mechanism is not clear but is thought to be related to autonomic dysfunction, glucose intolerance, or blood pressure and cortisol variance.
