Sacrificing sleep? Here’s what it will do to your health

We are one groggy, cranky, sleep-deprived population. Depending on our age, we are supposed to get between seven and 10 hours of sleep each night.

But according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a third of us get fewer than seven hours of sleep per night.

In addition, 50 million to 70 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, insomnia and restless leg syndrome, which can ruin a good night’s shuteye.

And we’re not alone. In bedrooms around the globe, men, women and children are tossing and turning.

According to World Sleep Day statistics, sleep deprivation is threatening the health of up to 45% of the world’s population.

Question: How many hours do you sleep per night? Would you like to sleep more?
