According to a recent Daily Herald article, as little as one hour a night of sleep loss can lead to unpleasant side effects.
The article shared information from the March issue of Experience Life magazine. The magazine mentions the following side effects:
When we don't get enough sleep, our immune systems become over worked, leading to inflammation in the arteries which can cause "genetic switches" to be turned on. This puts you at a higher risk for thinks like diabetes, heart disease and neuronal loss.
An example shared in Experience Life: if someone is genetically predisposed to develop Alzheimer's disease around 70, sleep disruption can cause the disease to develop much earlier.
