HEALTH ALERT -- Don't feel guilty about sleeping in late on weekends. Researchers say getting more sleep on Saturday and Sunday morning may extend your life. That't according to a new study published in the journal of sleep research.
The findings are based on nearly 44,000 people in Sweden over a 13 year period. There's no clear-cut answer yet on why sleeping on weekends makes a difference. But a professor from the stress research institute at Stockholm University says perhaps the short sleepers are catching up on some of the sleep they missed on the other days.
