Science can explain a lot of things — why women need more sleep; why waist trainers are bullshit; why you should be sleeping naked; why certain foods can make you better in bed. But it can’t explain everything. There are a number of commonplace phenomena that continue to stump scientists.

Parents Seriously Misjudge How Much Sleep Their Kids Need

Reuters Health – Many parents have only a poor understanding of how much sleep their children need, a New Zealand study found.

One in four parents thought children need less sleep than is recommended, while one in five thought children need more sleep than what experts advise.

Many parents also reported that TV watching, playing, and late dinners interrupted their kids’ regular bedtimes.

“Children who have insufficient sleep are more likely to have difficulties with their attention, mood, learning, health, and behavior at home and at school,” said lead author Philippa McDowall of the University of Otago in New Zealand.

Sleep-Starved: The Obesity and Sleep Connection

We all know as adults what it takes to lose weight and as parents how to prevent our children from packing on unhealthy pounds in the first place: diet and exercise are the two pillars of any weight-reduction/obesity prevention program. But what if there was a third approach we have been largely ignoring, which could contribute substantially to our ability to achieve and maintain a healthy weight? That important and often overlooked factor: sleep.

A large number of studies now support a connection between both sleep amount and timing and an increased risk of obesity in adults, children and teens. When you examine the trajectory of increasing rates of obesity in the United States and the concurrent decline in average sleep duration, the graphs are nearly parallel, strongly suggesting that there is an association between the two.

Both cross-sectional studies (which look at the relationship between sleep and weight/Body Mass Index [BMI] at Time Point A) and prospective studies (which examine the relationship between sleep duration at Time Point A and BMI at a later Time Point B) have demonstrated that short sleep and increased weight are closely related even when controlling for factors we know to contribute to obesity, like family history, television viewing and socioeconomic status.

Snooze on your side? How your sleep position can impact your health

Studies have shown that poor sleep — a lack of sleep or waking several times throughout the night — is linked to Alzheimer’s disease. Experts know that bad sleep bolsters the development of amyloids beta, peptides involved in the formation of the degenerative brain disease.

Researchers at Stony Brook wondered if different sleep positions influenced amyloid beta in the brain. They examined rats and found that sleeping on the side makes it easier for the brain to eliminate the amyloid beta.

While sleepers take for granted their positions, doctors know that how people snooze can reveal health problems. People with sleep apnea, cardiac disease, acid reflux, or neurological disease with impaired swallowing often sleep inclined on their backs.

Reading On A Screen Before Bed Might Be Killing You

You’ve heard that using screens before bedtime can mess with your sleep, but new research suggests the problem is even more serious.

Reading from an iPad before bed not only makes it harder to fall asleep, but also impacts how sleepy and alert you are the next day, according to new research from Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. The study, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences on Monday, said the findings could impact anyone who uses an eReader, laptop, smartphone, or certain TVs before bed.

The new research supports conclusions from older studies, which have also found that screen time before sleep can be detrimental.

Early Bird Or Night Owl, Your Sleep Schedule Says A Lot About Your Personality

Whether you’re a night owl or a morning person, your sleep habits reveal a lot about you–from your personality to the structure of your brain and even to your expected time of death.

That’s according to a new video from the YouTube video series ASAPScience, which explains the pros and cons of each sleeping preference.

“Early birds tend to display more positive social traits, such as being proactive and optimistic, and are less prone to depression or addictions to nicotine, alcohol, and food,” Mitchell Moffit, co-creator of the series, says in the video. “Night owls exhibit significantly less white matter [in their brains], and as a result, there are fewer pathways for feel-good hormones such as serotonin or dopamine to travel through, but it’s not all bad for the late-nighters. In fact, they tend to be much more creative, have been found to have higher cognitive abilities, and are known to be risk-takers.”

Want To Stop Snoring? Here’s What Works (And What Doesn’t)

Long considered little more than a nuisance, snoring is no longer something to ignore — to the delight of frustrated bed partners everywhere. To sleep physicians, snoring is a sign that something’s up.

“When you are snoring, you’re spending too much energy to breathe,” says Dr. M. Safwan Badr, M.D., president of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. “Snoring is like fever for a general internist — it tells you somethig is going on, but it doesn’t tell you what.”

Snoring occurs when a person’s airways have narrowed, causing the air that passes through it as we breathe to vibrate the soft tissue of the throat. “In principle, snoring is not normal,” he says. As a physician, he says he would want to know why that person is snoring in order to provide the best treatment, rather than have a snorer attempt to take her medical care into her own hands. “I would make sure that the body isn’t telling us to look for sleep-disordered breathing or sleep apnea,” he says.
