We certainly know that a lack of sleep will actually prevent your brain from being able to initially make new memories.

So it’s almost as though without sleep the memory inbox of the brain shuts down and you can’t commit new experiences to memory.

So those new incoming informational emails are just bounced and you end up feeling as though you’re a music you can’t essentially make and create those new memories.

We also know that a lack of sleep will lead to an increased development of a toxic protein in the brain that is called beta-amyloid.

That is associated with Alzheimer’s disease because it is during deep sleep at night when a sewage system within the brain actually kicks into high gear and it starts to wash away this toxic protein beta-amyloid.


So if you’re not getting enough sleep each and every night more of that Alzheimer’s related protein will build up.


The more protein that builds up the greater your risk of going on to develop dementia in later life.

What are the effects of sleep deprivation on the body?

Well, there are many different effects.

Firstly we know that sleep deprivation affects the reproductive system.

We know that men who are sleeping just 5 to 6 hours a night have a level of testosterone which is that of some 10 years their senior.


So a lack of sleep will age you by almost a decade in terms of that aspect of virility and wellness

We also know that a lack of sleep impacts your immune system,

So after just one night of 4 to five 5 of sleep, there is a 70% reduction in critical anti-cancer-fighting immune cells called natural killer cells

That’s the reason that we know that short sleep duration predicts your risk for developing numerous forms of cancer

That list currently includes

Cancer of the bowel

Cancer of the prostate as well as

Cancer of the breast

Less Sleep - cancer Posibilities
Less Sleep Lead to Cancers

In fact, the link between a lack of sleep and cancer is now so strong that recently the World Health Organization decided to classify any form of nighttime shift work as a probable carcinogen.

So in other words jobs that may induce cancer because of a disruption of your sleep-wake rhythms.

We also know that a lack of sleep impacts your cardiovascular system.

Because it is during deep sleep at night that you receive this most wonderful form of effectively blood pressure medication.

Your heart rate drops your blood pressure goes down.

If you’re not getting sufficient sleep you’re not getting that reboot of the cardiovascular system

So your blood pressure rises you have if you’re getting six hours of sleep or less a 200% increased risk of having a fatal heart attack or a stroke in your lifetime.

There is a global experiment that is performed on 1.6 billion people twice a year and it’s called daylight savings time.

We know that in the spring when we lose one hour of sleep we see a subsequent 24% increase in heart attacks the following day.

Another question perhaps iS

What is the recycle rate of a human being

How long can we actually last without sleep before we start to see declines in your brain function or even impairments within your body

The answer seems to be about 16 hours of wakefulness

Once you get past 16 hours of being awake that’s when we start to see the mental deterioration and physiological deterioration in the body

We know that after you’ve been awake for 19 or 20 hours your mental capacity is so impaired that you would be as deficient to someone who is legally drunk behind the wheel of a car.

16 Hours Without Sleep Result

So if you were to ask me what is the recycle rate of a human being it does seem to be about 16 and we need about eight hours of sleep to repair the damage of wakefulness

Wakefulness essentially is low-level brain damage.
