A new “Global Sleep Crisis’ Study says we are NOT getting enough sleep! Niagarabuzz hit the streets of niagara in this video to find out what people have to say about sleeping….
More on the Study:
The study went on to say that social pressures are forcing people to cut back on their sleep, and “The effects of society on sleep remain largely unquantified.”
It enabled scientists from the University of Michigan to track sleep patterns around the world — gathering data about how age, gender and the amount of natural light to which people are exposed affect sleep patterns in 100 countries — and better understand how cultural pressures can override biological rhythms.
People who need sleep suffer a reduction in their cognitive abilities without really being conscious of it, the new study says.
“Impaired sleep presents an immediate and pressing threat to human health,” it says.
A recent report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found one in three American adults is not sleeping the recommended minimum of seven hours.
Chronic lack of sleep increases the risk of obesity, diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease, according to the CDC.
