Sleep a bit longer, just a little bit...

Dormir un poco más, solo un poquitico…People who like to stay in bed to sleep "a bit more" now have a good excuse. According to new scientific research, the "liking for sleeping" is genetic.

European scientists studied more than 10 thousand people, and found that those with a genetic variant called ABCC9 require additional thirty minutes of sleep each night.

Scientists explain that one out of five Europeans have this gene, I assume this is a universal trend. It is known that sleep needs of people can vary dramatically from one to another.

Amongst the most extreme examples known are that of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, who could work with only four hours of sleep each night and that of Albert Einstein, who needed eleven hours.

In this study, they do not mention that wonderful Spanish invention: ''the siesta'', that is, to sleep two or three hours in the afternoon.

It would be interesting to know how the genetics of the Spanish works after this period of rest, and I finish my article right here because this issue has made me fall asleep. (By Juan Blas Rodríguez)
