CDC says 40 million of us are dangerously tired at work4/28/2012
The jolly folks behind the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report have some bad news for us. About 30 percent of our nation's workforce -- more than 40 million workers -- are getting fewer than six hours of sleep a night, and it's doing us all kinds of harm: upping our chances of obesity, car accidents and work-related illness. Fifty percent of pilots and 44 percent of truck drivers surveyed for one study worryingly reported rarely getting a good night's sleep, and we're guessing about 20 percent of you conked out during that last sentence. So how do you know if you're one of our nation's sleep-starved zombies? Sleep expert Dr. Breus says if you hit the snooze button more than twice, you're probably sleep-deprived.
