Many adults in the United States don’t get enough sleep. This is linked to an increased risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and death. Adults who don’t get enough sleep are also at higher risk for problems related to the brain, like stroke or dementia. Interventions to improve sleep environments and teach people about the importance of sleep may help more adults get enough sleep.
