この文章を訳してください! According to Kripke findings, people who sleep between 6.5 and 7.5 hours a night live the longest.And people who sleep eight hours or more, or less than 6.5 hours, don't live quite as long. In other words, both sleeping too long and not sleeping long enough are associated with health risk. The big surprise is that what is defined as a long sleep seems to start at eight hours. Thus, sleeping 8.5 hours every night might actually be a little worse for a person's longevity than sleeping five hours. This suggests that we should reconsider tha idea that the more sleep we get, the more beneficial is the effect on the mind and body. To feel our best, it is important to get a sufficient amount of restful sleep, and, at the same time, to keep in mind that sex or seven hours of sleep a night is plenty.

クリプケの報告では、一晩6時間半から7時間半の睡眠を取る人が一番長く生きる。8時間以上、あるいは6時間半以下の睡眠を取る人はそれほど長生きしない。言い換えれば、睡眠時間が長過ぎても、短すぎても健康を害する。大きな驚きは、8時間以上が長い睡眠時間と定義されていりことだ。このため毎晩8時間半寝ると、5時間寝る人に比べて少しばかり寿命が短くなる。     ということは、睡眠が長ければ長いほど、精神的にも身体的にもよい、という考えを改めなければならないことを意味する。最高の気分を味わうには充分な休養が必要であると同時に、性行為あるいは一晩7時間の睡眠で十分だということも覚えておく必要がある。

It is used by(A)as an escape from the world, and regarded by(B)as a irritating waste of time; but(C)can do without sleep completely.  Our night´s sleep does not just consist of a steady phase of gradually deepening sleep. It alternates between two stages: non-dreaming or ordinary sleep, and REM(rapid eye movement)or dreaming sleep.  As soon as we fall asleep we go straight into non-dreaming sleep for an hour or so, then into REM sleep for about 15 minutes, then back into non dreaming sleep. It alternates in this way for the rest of the night, with non-dreaming sleep tending to last longer at the beginning of the night. On-dreaming sleep occupies about three-quarters of our night´s sleep, about a quarter of it deep and the rest fairly light.  It is widely believed that sleep repairs the body and makes good the damage caused by being awake. But its main function is to refresh the brain. Experts believe that probably only about two-thirds of our sleep is necessary for repairing and refreshing the brain, with the most valuable sleep coming in the first few hours of the non- dreaming period: the last few hours of sleep are not so essential. The brain can manage quite well with reduced sleep as long as it is uninterrupted sleep.  The quality of sleep is important. A study conducted in the USA looked at short sleepers, who slept for 5.5 hours on average, and long sleepers, who had 8.5 hours or more. It was discovered after a variety of tests that the long sleepers were poor sleepers, had twice as much REM sleep as the short sleepers, appeared to sleep longer to make up for poor sleep, and did not wake up in the morning refreshed. Similarly, people who sleep deeply are not necessarily getting a better quality of sleep than shallow sleepers. Deep sleepers can feel tired the following days, so six hours of(D)sleep is worth more than eight hours of(E)sleep. 以上です。

    Message body sleep apnea prevents you from getting a good night's sleep. many people wake up tired even after they believe they have had a full night's sleep, and end up dragging themselves all through the next day. sleep apnea not only reduces sleep quality, but it makes people feel tired during the day. you must try to recognize why you aren' sleeping soundly; sleep apnea may be one possible reason why. sleep apnea affects the way you breathe when you're sleeping. you may not even know the problem. in untreated sleep apnea, breathing stops for 10 to 20 seconds, and this occurs many times during the night. when a person stops breathing, oxygen levels in the blood decrease. whenever the person runs out of enough air to breathe, the brain sends alerting signals to raise the level of stress hormones, and tells the heart to work harder. this is often compared to racing a car engine that has been running for long periods of time. because of sleep apnea, the heart becomes ovewoed, and that can cause a heart attack. the more severe the sleep apnea, the Greater the chance of a heart attack.

One possibility is that Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights may be spent in long and tiring entertainment. The resulting loss of sleep shows up in lower production on Monday.  Various tests indicate that loss of sleep is followed by poorer performance. It is true that very motivated people can do surprisingly well after long periods of staying awake. But they are able to do so only ady using up a great amount of energy.  People can lose sleep in two ways. They may go without any sleep for a long period. Or, they may sleep much less than usual for a period of several nights. In nne dxperiment, first of all, subjects were kept awake continuously for 72 hours. They were under medical care during this dangerous experiment. Even so, some fainted at the end. In another part of the experiment, the same subjects reduced the amount of their sleep from about 8 hours to about 5 hours a night for five nights. In  both cases, the subjects were given tests before and after the periods of no sleep or reduced sleep. Intelligence-test scores dropped only 24.5 percent following a period of 72 hours without sleep. However, the scores dropped only 14.9 percent following five nights with only 5 hour's sleep each night.  How much the individual swayed forward and backward when trying to stand still was also measured. After 72 hours without sleep, there was a 51.8 percent loss in control of bodily swaying. After five nights of 5 hours' sleep each, there was a loss of only 6.1 percent.  The amount of sleep a person needs varies with age. It also varies from individual to individual. But suppose it is absolutely impossible to get normal amounts of sleep. Studies have shown that it is better to take a number of short naps than to use all available sleeping time in one period. Other studies have found that performance drops in the early afternoon. One way of improving performance is to take a nap about halfway through the waking period. 以上です。

    question:I have difficulty sleeping at night and often find that it takes me two hours to nod off. Yet when I travel as a passenger in a car, bus or train, I find that I can fall asleep in minutes, often without intending to, and even while listening to music. I have woken up at the end of a journey only to fall into bed and be unable to sleep. Why is it that the quiet, relaxing and comfortable environment of a bed is less likely to let me sleep? answer:I too used to suffer from the 'fall asleep anywhere except in bed' syndrome. My idea was that it was mostly caused by my state of mind. When traveling, the noise and warmth can help sleepiness occurーtogether with the fact that one is usually not supposed to be doing anything. However, at bedtime it seemed that my mind would start some serious thinking because there was nothing to disturb me. That, together with the anxiety of looking at the clock past midnight, giving notice of another sleepless night, would keep me awake.

    The best way to prevent is to avoid mosquito bites. Mosquitoes are active at night,and people often get bitten while they are sleeping. They just need to hang a net around their bed,so it is very easy and inexpensive. Recently,a special kind of net was invented by a Japanese company. The fibers of the net contain a special insecticide that lasts for five years. There has been international suttort to deliver these nets to people in Africa.

    What has changed is that today more people are affected by tsunamis because larger populations live in dangerous areas close to the sea,and because we have destroyed environments such as coastal mangrove forests and wetlands that formerly protected people. の和訳をお願いしたいです。 特に最初のWhatがよくわかりません。関係代名詞ではないと思うのですが。 よろしくお願いします

    Most people feel lonely sometimes, but it usually only lasts between a few minutes and a few hours. This kind of loneliness is not serious. In fact, it is quite normal. For some people, though, loneliness can last for yeas. Psychologists are studying this complex phenomenon in an attempt to better understand long-term loneliness. These researchers have already identified three different types of loneliness. The first kind of loneliness is temporary. This is the most common type. It usually disappears quickly and does not require any special attention. The second kind, situational loneliness, is a natural result of a particular situation-for example, a divorce, the death of a loved one, or moving to a new place. Although this kind of loneliness can cause physical problems, such as headaches and sleeplessness, it usually does not last for more than a year. Situational loneliness is easy to understand and to predict.

     Recently, scientists have discovered several key genes connected to aging. The discovery suggests that people are built to get older, and weaker, and then to die. This seems rather strange and would appear to go against the theory of evolution. After all, if evolution is so efficient, why don't genes want us to have longer and longer lives? The simple fact is this: the genes that really matter are the ones that favor survival in early life. Once the organism has lived long enough to reproduce, it has served its purpose as far as evolution is concerned. Indeed the human life span has increased over the last hundred years or so, but this increase has nothing to do with our genes, rather with improvements in our lifestyle such as better diets and better health care.  So, from the genes' point fo view, it is vital that we live long enough to reproduce. What happens to us after that is of little concern to them. Thus, genes that make us strong and healthy during our reproductive years are always more valuable, more beneficial than those that may help us live longer.

    To be an efficient fat-burning machine, your body requires at least eight hours of sleep a night. If you think that you’re doing yourself a favor by sleeping less, you are mistaken. Give your body time to rest, both mentally and physically. という文章の、If you think that you’re doing yourself a favor by sleeping less, you are mistaken. の部分が良くわかりません。 「あまり寝ないことで自分自身のお願いを聞いている →自分自身のためには寝ない方がいい(寝ないことが身体が発する願望??) と思っているなら、それは間違いだ」ということでしょうか。宜しくお願いします。
