2 Importance of Sleep

3 Inadequate Sleep Weakens the Immune System
Decreases ability to fight infections Decreases natural killer cells Increases secretion of interleukin-6 (IL-6) and Tumor Necrosis Factor 6 hours of sleep for 7 days Increases risk of heart inflammation Tests show that those who lack sleep have around 70% less antibodies compared to those with adequate sleep

4 Inadequate Sleep Increases Diabetes Risk
Increases risk of type 2 diabetes Tests show that suppressing deep sleep for 3 nights increases blood sugar levels by 23% Inhibits insulin secretion

5 Inadequate Sleep Harms the Cardiovascular System
Increases risk of death from heart disease Increases risk of clogging up coronary arteries Increases release of stress hormones Among research subjects: 27% of those who slept less than 5 hours each night developed coronary artery calcification Only 6% of those who slept more than 7 hours developed coronary artery calcification

6 Inadequate Sleep May Lead to Weight Gain
Associated with lower levels of leptin, a hormone that suppresses hunger May increase hunger pangs In tests, those who slept less than 8 hours daily were twice as likely to be overweight or obese as those who slept for at least 10 hours

7 Causes of Inadequate Sleep—Excessive Stress
Higher secretion of cortisol, a stress hormone Waking up more often during the night Poor sleep quality Lack of rest for brain and muscles

8 Causes of Inadequate Sleep—Poor Sleep Environment
