I'd rather not think of sleep as being dangerous

According to Mind Hacks:

Sleep, it seems, is a dangerous pastime. The less sleep you get, the greater your chances of becoming obese; the more sleep you get, the greater your chances of developing Parkinson's disease.

These and other health-related studies are starting to get depressing because they seem to tell us that no matter what, we're out of luck. "Drink wine." "No, don't drink wine." "Have some chocolate." "No wait, don't." I think I'll choose wine, chocolate and sleep and move to Vanuatu so I don't have to worry about it.
