Sleep and Health


Published on

Sleep is a crucial health issue - but it is often ignored by both individuals and the medical community. Sleep has been shown to substantially impact almost every major health condition including Diabetes, Cancer, Obesity, Heart Disease, and Mental Health. It's time for sleep to take it's rightful place in keeping us health. This presentation gives some of the cold, hard facts behind why sleep is such a silent killer.

  • “Public health messages to emphasize the health benefits of adequate sleep and the risks of short sleep duration may be useful” (Egan 2006)28.
    “Public education of the health effects of sleep deprivation should be a priority” (Malhotra & Loscalzo 2009)29.
    Drake et al 201030, extending sleep in short sleepers leads to more creativity.
    Maas et al 201031, using Zeo as a tool for intervention in college students’ poor sleep.

    3. 3. Sleep Impacts Health Diabetes Obesity Heart Disease Poor Sleep Cancer Mental Health Immune Function Mortality
    4. 4. Mortality 110-126% Risk of mortality over the long term for short sleepers1,2. 131-139% Risk of mortality over the long term for short sleepers who use hypnotics/ tranquilizers2.
    5. 5. Immune Function “Sleep should be considered a vital part of the immune system” (Bryant, Trinder, & Curtis 2004)6. 3x Short sleepers’ susceptibility to rhinovirus (the common cold)3. ½ Immune response of the sleep deprived versus those who sleep enough4,5.
    6. 6. Diabetes 50-150% Greater risk of short sleepers for developing type 2 diabetes7,8. Sleep Insulin Resistance Glucose Tolerance Risk of Diabetes Mechanism that links sleep deprivation and type 2 diabetes9,10.
    7. 7. Obesity More sleep debt = greater risk11-13 “Replacing 1 h of inactive wakefulness (e.g. watching TV), with sleeping is likely to result in a substantial reduction in caloric intake” (Sivak 2006)14. 125-193% Risk of future obesity in short sleepers11.
    8. 8. Heart Disease 2x Short sleepers’ risk of developing cardiovascular disease7 and hypertension16,17. Sleep Blood Pressure Sympathetic Activity Risk of Heart Disease Mechanism that links sleep deprivation and heart disease18.
    9. 9. Cancer “Exposure to light-at-night [is] associated with an increased risk of breast cancer” (Davis & Mirick 2006)19. Light at Night Sleep Deprivation Circadian Disruption Risk of Cancer Mechanism that links sleep disruption and cancer20. Melatonin Suppression A WHO agency recently concluded that shift work is carcinogenic due to circadian disruptions and their link to cancer21.
    10. 10. Mental Health 40% Amount of mood disorder cases with patients presenting pre-existing insomnia22. 4x Depression relapse risk after treatment for patients with insomnia23. Sleep Risk of Depression24
    11. 11. Conclusion “Sleep is an indicator of health, and sufficient sleep quantity and good quality should be considered as an essential component of a healthy lifestyle, as much as exercise and nutrition” (Zee & Turek 2006)25. Sleep ExerciseNutrition Health
    12. 12. The Cutting Edge of Research • Interventions in sleep to improve health outcomes are the next step in sleep research12,14,26,27. • Researchers are already calling for interventions in the population28,29. • Zeo’s SoftWave™ technology is well positioned to play a major role in the research30 and potential intervention efforts31.
