Research shows that if you sleep less than this number of hours, everything will become very bad.
Sleep is vital to our body. Scientists have been studying the best sleeping positions, pillows, mattresses and times of day for decades. However, the main question remains – how many hours a day does a person really need to sleep in order to maintain the health of the body, writes IFL Science.
In a new study, scientists calculated the exact amount of sleep that a person needs, as well as the minimum amount of sleep for person per day. Scientists have come to the conclusion that in an ideal world we should all sleep for 8 hours a day. But, alas, not everyone succeeds. Therefore, scientists have calculated the minimum threshold below which it is not recommended to fall.

As it turns out, people need to sleep at least 5 hours a day so as not to put themselves at risk of developing numerous chronic diseases and other problems with health.
The study involved about 8 thousand people who did not have two or more chronic diseases. After a while, scientists again checked the presence of chronic diseases in recipients and compared it with the amount of sleep.
It turned out that those who sleep less than 5 hours a day have a 30% higher risk of multiple chronic diseases than people who who sleep seven hours a day. The researchers found that the group with the least amount of sleep, below 5 hours, had the highest risk of developing one or more chronic diseases. In addition, these participants also had an increased risk of early death.
At the same time, those who slept more than 5 hours a night were more likely to avoid multiple chronic diseases later in life.
