3 Dangers of not sleeping enough


1. Sleepiness Causes Accidents Sleep deprivation was a factor in some of the biggest disasters in recent history: the 1979 nuclear accident at Three Mile Island, the massive Exxon Valdez oil spill, the 1986 nuclear meltdown at Chernobyl, and others. But sleep loss is also a big public safety hazard every day on the road. Drowsiness can slow reaction time as much as driving drunk. 2. Sleep Loss Dumbs You Down Sleep plays a critical role in thinking and learning. Lack of sleep hurts these cognitive processes in many ways. First, it impairs attention, alertness, concentration, reasoning, and problem solving. This makes it more difficult to learn efficiently. 3. Sleep Deprivation Can Lead to Serious Health Problems Sleep disorders and chronic sleep loss can put you at risk for: Heart disease Heart attack Heart failure High blood pressure Stroke Diabetes Sleep is very important, and like a wise man once said "don't give up on your dreams, keep sleeping" :) Remember to visit your nearest Peermed Healthcare Centre: http://peermed.co.za Info ref: webmd
