Sleep deprivation consequences

3rd May 2007
A spokesperson from the Sleep Council has said being deprived of sleep can have serious mental and physical consequences.

Jessica Alexander made the comments after the results of Travelodge's sleep survey were released, which showed 97% of professionals in the UK slept for the recommended eight hours per night. She said research had shown connections between sleep deprivation and health conditions, including heart attacks and obesity. She observed: "It's not really surprising that if you are depriving someone of the sleep they need, there can be a knock on effect on quite a lot of physical and mental conditions, in extreme issues."
