As I was travelling most of June, I kept catching up on reading the books and magazines, for which I had had no time in the past months. Among others, I read “Biomarkers” by W. Evans, Ph.D. and I.H.

Why is sleep so important?Most of us agree that we don’t get enough of it. But that dragging, heavy-lidded feeling isn’t the only bad result of sleep deprivation – lack of sleep can lead to serious health risks. Short sleep duration is linked with overeating, diabetes and heart problems, depression and substance abuse, and an increased risk of nodding off at the wheel.
There was a time when people with ulcers were always thought to be kids who became too hyper or some people like businessmen who were too stressed with work that they have already forgotten to eat.
