What is the exact duration of sleep required for each age group beginning from 0 to 100. I read many different views of people and couldn't come to a conclusion yet. I thought I can get the right answer from my friends in this site. Hope you can help me.

The excat duration nobody can find out. The duration of sleep depends on the intigrity of sleep; the concntration; age group; working style; health conditions & climatic change. For example,the sound sleep (good sleep) for the haelty person of 30-45 years is about 7-8 hours per day. tomuch sleep / lesser sleep may also affect the body metabaolisam rate.

Well, it differs from individual to individual. Some needs more than 8 hours and some needs less than that. For elderly, I think they need more sleep like 8 hours and for infant, they sleep after each feedings. I think the right amount of sleep would be 8 hours because these are the hours where your cell start renewing, liver starts to detox and more importantly, your body need the rest from all the stress.
