Sleep Disorders

  • Aired: 04/14/2010
  • 32:37
  • Rating: NR
Our bodies need sleep to replenish from the mental and physical wear and tear we suffer during the day, but our 'always-on' culture is leaving us sleep-deprived. That puts us at risk for conditions from weight gain to heart attacks. We'll examine the relationship between sleep disorders and obesity and what you can do about it. Plus, we'll take a look at the sleep issues that plague seniors.
