Lack of Sleep Increases Likelihood of Stroke
Not getting enough sleep may be hurting more than your job performance, according to new research. People who sleep six hours or less per night are four times more likely to have a stroke, researchers said.
Approximately 30 percent of people sleep less than six hours, researchers said. The number of people who report sleeping eight or more hours per night dropped from 38 percent in 2001 to 28 percent in 2011, according to the National Sleep Foundation. However, sleep researchers often put too much emphasis on the amount of sleep instead of focusing on what's really important, sleep quality. If you have sleep apnea and you stop breathing through the night, you might feel really tired in the morning even though you've gotten eight hours. Those eight hours were horrible, light, interrupted sleep. 
In order to ensure a better quality of sleep, people should try to go to bed at the same time every day, create a relaxing bedroom environment, avoid watching television or eating a large meal right before bed and turn off their cell phone.
"Any degree of sleep deprivation impairs performance or mood," Dr. Mark Mahowald. "Our society has got to learn to respect sleep as biologically imperative. Getting a good night's sleep is as important as exercising regularly and eating a good diet."
Dr. Iverson's Comment
This month’s TRILIUM top stories put emphasis on electromagnetic frequencies and their effect on the body.   Sleep can be highly affected by changes in electromagnetic frequencies as brain waves which are electromagnetic impulses go through different phases while sleeping. I recommend those with insomnia to make sure anything with a cord or a battery stays an arm’s length away from the head as well as electrical outlets. Do not have the head of your bed on the same wall that the power comes into the home. I often will recommend discharging the electrical energy that builds up in our bodies from wearing shoes by removing them and walking bare feet in the grass before bed. 
Sleep is a vital recharger of the physical battery. To keep the battery from “short circuiting” we must maintain healthy sleep hygiene with the suggestions above.
