The dangers of sleep deprivation go beyond disease prevention and have been documented in numerous studies. The National Sleep Foundation reports that 100,000 vehicle crashes are the direct result of insufficient sleep resulting in 1,500 deaths annually. Individuals receiving less than 7.5 hours of sleep on a regular basis are at a greater risk for stroke, heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, depression, obesity and a multitude of other diseases.
