I would like to know where he got the research about less than 7-9 hours sleep. The sleep foundation, says otherwise, which is the site he quoted.
Hey Melissa! I actually looked into the research myself because I was so surprised by this. Here’s an article on the same site that says the 7-9 number is a rough range created by a panel of experts, but that there’s wiggle room with this and it’s not set in stone. Below is an NIH article too. Hope that helps!
