Research: Sleeping Less Than 5 Hours Poses Serious Risks

London: Medical experts have reached a conclusion from a study that insufficient sleep, less than 5 hours, can have dangerous consequences on human life.

Scientists suggest that individuals who sleep less than 5 hours at night are at an increased risk of experiencing depression (mental stress). Researchers note that it’s well understood that when mental health is compromised, it can affect a person’s sleep. However, recent research involving over 7,000 participants has revealed that poor or inadequate sleep can actually contribute to a significant increase in depression (mental stress).

Experts affiliated with University College London have based their findings on data that shows people with a sleep duration of less than 5 hours face increased risks associated with the quality of their mental health. They have provided an interesting analogy to help explain the situation: the relationship between insufficient sleep and depression is much like that between the chicken and the egg – that is, it’s unclear which comes first.
