Is sleeping for long hour bad for health?

Answer #1

it depends on what you are doing when you are not asleep- if you are excercising and moving around i would say -NO.

on the other hand if you are simply eating and being a couch potato- then YES it could be unhealthy and lead to obesity and other health issues.

Answer #2

yes it is bad depending on how long you sleep each day and your age

a study conducted with over 1 million people showed that ppl who slept for over 8 hours had shorter life spans

also be warned if you sleep over 12 hours you could be a hypersomniac, but it could also be from fatiuge, malnutrition etc. as well

Answer #3

Normal health person should sleep around 6-8 hours and of course if you are too old, you may not get to sleep for 8 hours also.But more than 9-10 hours will be too bad fro sure
