Leading sleep scientist warns that lack of sleep in modern society is killing us, has 'catastrophic' effect on health

'I take my sleep incredibly seriously because I have seen the evidence,' says Professor Matthew Walker

A "catastrophic sleep-loss epidemic" is causing a host of potentially fatal diseases, a leading expert has said.

In an interview with the Guardian, Professor Matthew Walker, director of the Centre for Human Sleep Science at the University of California, Berkeley, said that sleep deprivation affected "every aspect of our biology" and was widespread in modern society.

And yet the problem was not being taken seriously by politicians and employers, with a desire to get a decent night's sleep often stigmatized as a sign of laziness, he said.
