Sing me to Sleep

So some research from the USA has suggested that if you take sleeping pills you are four more times likely to die. The researchers do not seem to say how you will die. But you will. Really.

Why scare people? Most people who take sleeping pills want to sleep and have tried everything else. How much more likely are they to die from sleep deprivation? Is there some research on that?

You have to balance the benefits with the risks.

So annoying…

  1. Funny, last week the BBC ran an article about how we only need to sleep in 4hr increments, and we can break our sleep during the night. All this confusion is giving me nightmares!
