We die without sleep!
This was discovered by a research doctor who kept animals from sleeping for 6 – 30 months. His study was trying to make another point, “Lack of sleep won’t harm you”, so he phrased the result stating;
“Lack of sleep did not kill the animals; they all died of organ failure”!
His test proved; Lack of sleep kills!
Here are his words from Scientific American.com: Ask the Experts: Biology: (on the internet)
“Another rare disorder, Fatal Familial Insomnia (FFI), is an autosomal dominate disease that is invariably fatal after about 6-30 months without sleep. FFI is probably misnamed because death results from multiple organ failure rather than sleep deprivation.”
Can you believe it: If by withholding sleep, death resulted from organ failure, then sleep is necessary for the health of our organs without which we die!
We need a good sleep nightly!
