  • Lawsuits Claim Vaccine Caused Narcolepsy

    In 2009, there was a pandemic of H1N1 ‘swine flu’ in Europe, and in response, millions of doses of a special vaccine were used throughout several countries on the continent. Mysteriously, soon after the vaccine was administered it was discovered that over 800 children in those countries who had received the vaccine were diagnosed with narcolepsy, a brain disorder that disrupts the body’s sleep/wake cycle.  People who have this sleep disorder exhibit excessive daytime sleepiness, and experience uncontrollable bouts of sleeping in the middle of the day. The condition is thought to be caused by an autoimmune destruction of hypocretin-producing neurons that stop the brain from functioning normally. Today several lawsuits were filed against the State of Ireland, the pharmaceutical company that created the vaccine, and the Irish health minister claiming personal injury caused by the vaccine.

  • Myths that cause you to lose sleep

    If you’re trying to improve the quality and quantity of your sleep then you’re not alone. With more and more studies being published every day about how important it is to get high quality rest, people are turning in earlier and turning to high-tech devices to give them a leg up. But sometimes adding new behaviors isn’t as important as doing away with old ones, or getting your head straight on mistaken beliefs that you’ve been carrying around with you. In the interest of helping you get a better night’s sleep, here are several sleep myths that you need to be on the right side of.

    You Can Make Up for Lost Sleep

    How many times have you told yourself that it doesn’t matter that you stayed up late every night this week because you’ll make up for it on the weekend? The idea sounds great in theory, and there’s no doubt that it feels great to sleep in an extra hour or two on Saturday or Sunday (or both), but the truth is that if you’ve shorted yourself more than an hour or two of sleep, then you’re simply not likely to be able to make up for your sleep debt. Not only that, before you ever get to the weekend you’re likely going to be seeing the impact of your sleep deprivation. Though your extra sleep on the weekend may make you feel a bit more refreshed, it will not be enough to restore your attention, memory and cognitive performance to where it should be.

  • Sleeping with Pets

    If you are an animal lover who thinks that the more pets in your room and in your bed, the merrier, then we have some bad news for you.  A number of studies conducted over the last several years have shown that sleeping with pets is particularly bad for you because it robs you of the good night’s sleep that you need.

    A recent survey that was presented at SLEEP 2014, the 28th annual meeting of the Associated Professional Sleep Societies, showed that thirty percent of those who acknowledged sleeping with their pets also admitted to being woken up at least one time each night by their animals, and 63 percent said that they have overall poor sleep quality. Five percent indicated that once their pet has woken them up in the middle of the night they find they have a hard time falling back to sleep.  Continue reading

  • Researchers Learn that Sleep Drunkenness is Common

    Scientists have long been aware of a sleep disorder known as confusional arousal, a condition that causes sleepers to awaken feeling disoriented, confused, and uncertain as to where they are. Also known as “sleep drunkenness”, it had been thought that the incidence of these episodes were relatively rare, but new research has revealed that it is happening to more people than sleep scientists had realized, and may be impacted as many as one out of every fifteen adults in the United States.

  • Sleep Myths and Misunderstandings

    Whether you are eight months old or are in your eighties, you need sleep. Experts say that the average adult requires somewhere between seven and nine hours spent sleeping every single night in order to maintain optimum health and cognitive acuity. As sleep scientists delve deeper into why we sleep, how we sleep and what we can do to make our sleep more effective, they are also rapidly disproving a number of long-standing sleep misconceptions. Here are several sleep myths that have been disproven, and an eye-opening look into the truth behind sleep. Continue reading
