What is America’s Largest, Deadliest, and Most Costly Health Problem?

Posted Feb 17 2010 10:02pm

I firmly believe the answer is unhealthy sleep. In my lexicon, unhealthy sleep includes chronic sleep deprivation as well as sleep disorders. Therefore, my answer to the question is pervasive sleep deprivation and undiagnosed and untreated or misdiagnosed and mistreated sleep disorders collectively are American’s largest, deadliest and most costly health problem.
