Sleep shortage increases risk of Alzheimer's Disease
Data and research conducted in various parts of the world has indicated that lack of sleep can increase the risk of Alzheimer's disease.
Proper sleep is vital to refresh the mind by flushing out toxins from the brain.
As per experts, atleast 7-8 hours of minimum sleep is required for the brain to get rid of toxin buildup. In case there is a shortage of sleep and rest, the toxins start to accumulate.
However, sleep is only one of the contributing factors for Alzhiemer's disease and is not the main cause.
Alzhiemer's disease is caused by the degeneration of the nervous system and affects the functions of brain. One of the main symptom of the disease is memory loss and affects millions of older people across the world.
Alzhiemer's disease has no cure and patients need to take medication and assistive care for managing the symptoms.
