“Getting Less Than 7 Hours Of Sleep May Lead To Obesity, Study Finds,” CBS
“Consistently missing out on a full night’s sleep is detrimental to one’s health in different ways and may help contribute to obesity, according to a new study by the University of Leeds in England. . . . The study’s findings revealed that those who reported getting less than seven hours of sleep each night have larger waists than those who get more sleep. . . . Those who slept less also had less good cholesterol, which removes fat from the body.”
LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform):
More evidence for the well-recognized link between deficient sleep, obesity, diabetes and dementia onset.
