Join Jacqueline Foreman and Dr. Sheila Forman as they discuss sleep disorders and how they can impact your life in a very negative and distructive way. Pop icon Michael Jackson’s unexpected death shocked the world. It was recently confirmed that the singer died due to an overdose of the drug Propofol, which he was using as a sleep aid. But Jackson wasn’t the only one having trouble sleeping—millions of us struggle with sleep deprivation, and its effects can be deadly. Dr. Sheila Forman discusses sleep deprivation, both in the Jackson case and as it relates to your audience. Find out: • The many (and often unrecognized) symptoms of sleep deprivation, including nausea, confusion, stuttering, and visual impairment. • Why lack of sleep can make you fat. • How decreased judgment, reaction time and loss of reasoning makes sleep deprivation mimic intoxication and drug use.
