But those extra hours of stirring time do come with a cost. According to www.HealthScienceDegree.com,
- Reducing sleep by 90 minutes for one night can reduce daytime alertness by up to 32 percent;
- Untreated sleep disorders can cause high blood pressure, heart failure, strokes and obesity; and
- The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that drowsy driving is responsible for 100,000 car crashes, 71,000 injuries and 1,550 fatalities.
