Study finds that 30 minutes of additional nightly sleep may have health benefits

A study in the June issue of the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine found a clear dose-response between sleep duration and health status: the more hours of sleep, the better the overall self-reported health. Results show that fewer hours of sleep resulted in greater body mass index (BMI) and cardiovascular risk, and the study suggests that 30 minutes of additional nightly sleep is clinically relevant.
