Peer-Reviewed Scientific Journal:
Journal of Aging Research

Size of study:
245 healthy middle-aged women

Summary
These researchers found that women who reported poorer subjective sleep quality had shorter leukocyte telomere length, independent of age, body mass index, race, and income. These findings suggest a mechanism by which poor quality sleep influences negative health outcomes.
