But apnea seems to accelerate biological aging, and treating it appears to slow down or reverse that trend. Read about this newly published study by the University of Missouri School of Medicine.

The rule of thumb is that people should get about 8 hours of sleep per night.
But is it really for EVERYONE?
See what scientists from the University of California San Francisco are saying about some ‘“elite sleepers.”
Emerging evidence indicates that light exposure plays a role in human metabolic regulation, with evening light exposure having unfavorable effects on metabolic functions including decreased glucose tolerance and decreased insulin sensitivity.
This newly published study in PNAS shows how one night of moderate light exposure during sleep can produce these changes and proposes pathways to explain the relationship between nighttime light exposure and altered metabolic function.
