We can't stress enough how important sleep is for your health. But we also know that most of America is sleep-deprived or suffering from insomnia, falling under the recommended eight hours of sleep. So what exactly is going on with our brains?

What's the main takeaway? No sleep means we would self-destruct.

Sleep deprivation sounds very much like being drunk, not definitely not in the good way.
