Poor sleep habits can impact teens’ long-term health

PsychCentral cited a UBC study which found that poor sleep can affect long-term health of teens.

“Kids who regularly had trouble falling or staying asleep were almost 2-1/2 times as likely to report sub-optimal or less than excellent health, compared to those who did not,”  said study author Annalijn Conklin, a professor of pharmaceutical sciences at UBC.
