AASM Partners with CDC to Address Chronic Sleep Loss Epidemic
Date:11/13/2013

Badr, public health policies and wellness programs frequently fail to recognize the substantial body of evidence illustrating that sleep duration and sleep quality are as important to health as good nutrition and adequate exercise.  

"Diagnosis and treatment of sleep illnesses can bring relief to the millions of Americans suffering from poor sleep," said Badr. "However, fundamental to the success of these efforts is the recognition and awareness that healthy sleep is not a luxury; it is a necessity and should be thought of as a vital sign of good health."

Poor sleep health is a common problem, with 30 percent of U.S. adults failing to meet the Healthy People 2020 objective for sufficient sleep. Furthermore, it is estimated that about 70 million Americans suffer from sleep problems, with nearly 60 percent having a chronic illness such as obstructive sleep apnea.

Inadequate sleep in children, particularly among adolescents, negatively affects academic performance and contributes to adverse health risks such as depression, physical inactivity, obesity, substance abuse, inattentive driving, tardiness and school violence.
