Less sleep equals more colds
According to an article in the "New York Times," a lack of sleep increases one's susceptibility to catching a cold.
"Sleep and immunity, it seems, are tightly linked. Studies have found that mammals that require the most sleep also produce greater levels of disease fighting white blood cells--but not red blood cells, even though they are both produced in bone marrow and stem from the same precursor," the article said.
Other studies have shown that more sleep results in a greater resistance against pathogens.
In an experiment, men and women were exposed to cold viruses and those who slept less than seven hours a night were three times more likely to get sick than those who slept at least eight hours.
