Poor Sleep and Inflammatory Disease
Insufficient sleep is considered a public health epidemic by The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
Common sleep disturbances such as insomnia are associated with the increased risk of inflammatory disease and mortality
Recent studies highlight that both too much and too little sleep are associated with inflammation
New research published in an article by UCLA Semel Institute for Neuroscience reviewed 72 different articles and studies of more than 50,000 participants
The research concluded "sleep disturbance or insomnia should be regarded as behavioural risk factors for inflammation, similar to the adverse effects of a high fat diet or sedentary lifestyle".
