Health Tip: Insufficient Sleep Can Be Dangerous

Here's how it affects your health

(HealthDay News) -- A good night's sleep does much more than help you stay awake through a long day. It actually helps protect your health.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention lists these problems that can arise as a result of insufficient sleep:

  • Increased risk of chronic diseases, including cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
  • Greater likelihood of becoming obese or overweight.
  • Increased risk of developing depression.
  • Added risk of getting into a motor vehicle accident because of "drowsy driving."
