Drifting off to Dreamland: FOX28’s Tom Powell puts a sleep app to the test
_The CDC has called insufficient sleep a public health epidemic, with as many as 70 million Americans suffering from sleep problems. “We live in a toxic environment for sleep, and people really don’t prioritize sleep,” says Dr. Nathaniel Watson with the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. He says short sleep is associated with cardiovascular disease, obesity, and even a shorter life. He says apps can be useful tools to help you doze off or learn more about your sleep, but he doesn’t believe they can diagnose sleep illness.
