Experts say that less than 6 hours of sleep per night may hurt your heart.  So the question is, how many hours of sleep do you get each and every night?

According to USA Today along with a recent study, sleeping less than six hours every night could increase your risk of cardiovascular disease.

The study focused on 4,000 people with no known history of heart disease.  Their average age was 46, and two-thirds of participants were men.

A study published in April suggests when you go to bed is important.  The joint study by researchers found people who stayed up later had a higher mortality rate than those who go to sleep early.  For more on this study please click on the above link.
