Everyone knows the common negative effects of sleep deprivation, such as diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure and heart desease, however it doesn't make the majority of people smarter about their sleep. Our bodies need a good 8 hours of sleep but according to a Centers for Disease Control report released in 2012 almost 1/3 of working adults in America get only 6, and it gets even worse in Daylight Saving. A recent study of two hospitals in Michigan found that they treated almost twice as many heart attack victims on the first day of Daylight Saving, and that there are usually more car accidents following the time change. But the main poin here is a new discovery made in a study just published in the "Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences". It's proven that getting too little sleep just a few nights in a row disrupts hundreds of genes responsible for stress and fighting diseases. Different genes turn on and off, and the ones that became active with lack of sleep, were involved in inflammation, immunity and protein damage. So people Sleep On!
