Even Ben Franklin knew the virtues of a good night’s sleep: “Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy and wise.”

Then again, Franklin also held some dubious viewpoints, including one that questioned the bald eagle as the choice for America’s national bird: “He is a Bird of bad moral character.”

In a 1999 study by the University of Chicago, a group of healthy young adults was limited to just 4 hours of sleep per night for a week. This resulted in altered hormone levels for some test subjects: Glucose metabolism mirrored that of diabetics, and cortisol — which help the body use glucose and fat — levels matched those of a much older population.

A lack of sleep has been tied to obesity, diabetes, sleep apnea and other health issues. So we know it’s important, but how many hours of sleep do we need?
