Sleep Deprivation Causes and Side Effects
Not getting enough sleep or in turn suffering from sleep deprivation can be one of the most dangerous things that can happen to the human body. While sleep deprivation is a commonplace occurrence in modern culture, the full extent of what it can do have yet to be found out.
The body reacts in so many different ways to sleep deprivation, especially when it happens to be chronic, causing ongoing fatigue, a feeling within your brain and body of weakness.
While this may be ok at nighttime, or so you may think, sleep deprivation can cause daytime sleepiness, and can be especially dangerous when doing manual labor or anything that requires you to operate machinery, due to the onset of clumsiness.
While all of the above may sound quite normal to you, it also has other effects on the body including weight loss and even weight gain, due to your body not functioning normally. But probably the most dangerous part of sleep deprivation is that it can have adverse effects on the brain and also on cognitive function.
