Sleep is an integral part of healthy living. Yet, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, sleep deprivation is so pervasive in America that it has become a serious public health problem. Approximately, 70 million Americans suffer from chronic sleep problems. If left untreated, sleep-related disorders may have significant adverse consequences.
Not only is insufficient sleep linked to the development of a broad range of diseases, including cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes, obesity, depression, and dementia, but it also contributes to motor vehicle crashes and machinery-related injuries that cause substantial injury and disability. The National Department of Transportation estimates that drowsy driving causes 1,550 fatalities and 40,000 nonfatal injuries each year in the United States. The good news is that sleep-related disorders can be diagnosed and treated.
