Myths about Sleeping


America’s Largest Organic Futon mattress manufacturer and retailer, The Futon Shop, responds to the April 8th article, “Expert Looks At Myths Surrounding A good Night’s Sleep” published by CBS Local Miami News.


Dr. Daniel Buysse, with the University of Pittsburgh’s Sleep Institute, debunks a few myths in the April 8th 2012 CBS Miami News article, “Expert Looks At Myths Surrounding A Good Night’s Sleep.”
A new myth that turns out to be true according to Dr. Daniel Buyesse is that a lack of sleep increases obesity. “There’s actually quite a bit of evidence linking very short sleep to obesity and to the tendency to gain weight overtime,” said Dr. Buysse. A myth that Buysse says is wrong is that it does matter what time of day you sleep. Human beings have biological clocks that want us to sleep at night, according to Dr. Buysse who added that we just don’t sleep as well during the day.
