Published in the medical journal BMJ Open, it claims that people who use prescription sleeping pills are more likely to die or get cancer than those who don't. To be precise, people turning to the sleep aids are four times more likely to kick it.
Not what I wanted to hear.
Then, I see this story from USA Today, saying people who are lacking in sleep are more likely to have a stroke.
And the other day, my favorite fitness guru, Jillian Michaels, sends out an email linking to this piece, which says that seven hours of sleep a night is not a luxury, but a necessity. That you're more likely to get diabetes, heart disease, cancer, depression, blah, blah, blah.
Just take me out back now and shoot me.
