Editorial Reviews

Airdate: 03/16/08 Why do we sleep? Lesley Stahl visits sleep labs to find out, and learns that sleep is as essential to our health as nutrition and exercise. In fact, scientists are seeing a link between lack of sleep and serious health conditions such as diabetes, obesity, and heart disease. A good night's sleep is also essential to memory, which is something college students should consider before their next all-nighter.

I am the medical director of an accredited sleep disorders center and saw this "60 Minutes" segment when it originally aired in early 2008. I thought it was superb and wanted a copy to use as a patient education tool. I was thrilled when an assistant at "60 Minutes" directed me to Amazon to purchase this segment on DVD. This report accurately summarizes key knowledge regarding sleep and the effects of sleep deprivation and sleep loss. This is a message that needs to be heard by a broad public and it is very effectively presented. The sleep clinicians and scientists that are interviewed are among the most well respected and authoritative in the field.

I most highly recommend this DVD to anyone with sleep problems or who is interested in the role of sleep in health.

I love this program first aired on 60 Minutes. I facilitate wellness workshops and always mention this as a great explanation on the problems with not getting enough sleep.

Excellent material, communicates why sleep is so important and how many other bodily functions rely on the proper quantity and quality of sleep to perform at an adequate level.
