Sleep is an integral part of healthy living. Yet, according to the 2011 Sleep in America poll conducted by the National Sleep Foundation, 60% of the respondents reported experiencing sleep-related problems every night or almost every night. If left untreated, sleep-related disorders may have significant adverse consequences.
Not only is insufficient sleep often responsible for motor vehicle and machinery-related accidents, but it is also linked to the development of a broad range of chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, and depression. According to research studies, sleep apnea, for example, increases the risk of a heart attack by 30% and raises the risk of dying prematurely by 46%.
