Sleep is a rare commodity in many households, especially as children find themselves loaded down with more homework. But lack of sleep has been tied to serious health risks, the most recent of which is increased risk factors for type 2 diabetes.

Perhaps most disturbing about the study, though, was the fact that as little as one hour’s reduction in sleep can lead to an increased risk of diabetes.
