Less Than Six Hours of Sleep Increases Death Risk from Chronic Disease

We all need sleep, but often our busy schedules keep us from getting the amount our bodies truly need. A recent article from New Atlas.com highlights a new study from the American Heart Association that found normal sleep (eight hours) can be protective for people with certain chronic health ailments, like high-blood pressure and diabetes.  Less than six hours a night increases the chances of early death in people suffering from some chronic health conditions, including heart disease.
