Solution

To get a better idea of what causes obesity, researchers interviewed the parents of 785 third graders from around the United States. The parents answered questions about how well their kids slept that year. Three years later, the parents answered the same questions.

By sixth grade, 18 percent of kids involved in the study were obese. The scientists found that gaining weight has nothing to do with a student’s race or gender. Sleep, instead, seemed to be the key factor. Over the 3 years of the study, the children averaged a healthy 9.5 hours of sleep a night. Some kids, however, slept a lot more–or less–than others.

For the sixth graders, every hour of sleep above the 9.5-hour average was linked to a 20 percent lower risk of being obese. Sleep appeared doubly important for the third graders. Every extra hour of sleep they got was linked to a 40 percent drop in obesity by sixth grade. So if you are a weight-watcher it does make sense to spend an extra hour in the bed.
