nearly two-thirds of americans do not get a full eight hours of sleep. did you hear that? now, one researchers sowning the alarm of what he calls a sly lent sleep loss epidemic. he's scientist mike walker who's studied it for more than 20 year. he teaches neuroscience and psychology at the europe vertsz of california berkeley an he's published more than 100 scientific studies. >> walker's new book is "why we sleep." he said it has a catastrophic impact on our health, work productivity, and children's education. the book is published by
>> i thit's become one of the greatest public challenges. >> why? >> every disease that's killing us from cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, stroke, even suicide, they all have significant and causal links to insufficient end sleep and if you look at the epidemiological data, short sleep equals a shorter life. >> what's the link? >> the link actually is many-fold, so upstairs in the brain we know that it create as toxic protein buildup, a protein that's calledamyloid. it's related to alzheimer's. downstairs it lees to immune problems and chemistry issues that encreed cardiovascular disease and increase cancer-related molecules. you also want to eat more.
>> you're fatter. >> you gain weight more quickly actually it's on the foundatiat book is it's research-based. one third of adults take naps. what does research say about that? >> well, naps are a double-edged sword. you have to be quite careful. firstly ask yourself why you're napping. sleep sjt like a bank. you can't accumulate debt and then snap it off or nap over the weekend. naps can be dangerous in the sense that during the day the longer that we're awake, we build up sleepiness and that's good. it's healthy. it means we'll fall asleep and stay asleep well at night, but if you nap during the afternoon, it's almost like a valve on a pressure cooker, you release some of that sleepiness so then it makes it that much more difficult to fall asleep.
>> it adds to your productive and. >> naps if you make them regular -- that you say don't nap after 3:00 p.m. >> yeah. if you're struggling with neep in the evening or if you can't nap regularly, the advice is don't nap at all, but naps do have some benefit to them. nasa figured this back out in 1980s. they called it the nasa nap culture. they increased production activity by 30% and alertness by 50%. >> you recommend against sleeping pills, the bad, the badding and the ugly. >> they're a class of drugs that we call the said active hypnotic and sedation is not sleep so you're simply removing consciousness. you're not producing naturalistic sleep. the second is they've been related to a higher risk of
mortality of death and a high risk of cancer too. >> to make sure we get to, this what do you do to to make sure you get as much sleep as you should? >> i think there are probably five key tip. firstly, keep it regular. go to bed at the same time, wake up at the same time, no matter what. the second is darkness. we're actually a dark deprived societiet. so at night try to dim your lights. put half of the lights on. you don't need them all. limit screen time that allowed that melatonin hormone to develop to get you to sleep. keep it cool. >> 65 degrees. >> 65 to 67. >> i've been turning it down. >> your body needs to drop its temperature to get to sleep and you d help it to do that. that's the third thing. the fourth is walk it out. don't stay in bed if you've been away because at the that point your bed lends association to being awake.
many people will say to me i'm sort of falling asleep on the couch with the television, get into my bed and i'm wide awake. because you haven't learned the association. get out, go to a different room, dark light, dim lierkts read a book. only return when you're sleepy and then you'll relearn the association between your bed equaling sleepiness. finally and it makes me deeply unpopular, no caffeine after 2:00 p.m. and no nightcap. alcohol is one of the most misunderstood chemicals. it's a sedative. you're just knocking yourself out and it leads to fragmented sleep, you wake up many times during the name and blocks your extreme state. >> you didn't mention food. >> the advice is don't go to bed too full, don't go to bed too hungry. >> thank you, matt. >> sleep cures a lot of things. >> it's on sale now.
