Poor Sleep Linked To Development of Alzheimer's Disease

Too little, too low-quality sleep has long been linked with a host of health issues, including weight gain, depression and strokes.
Jeffrey Iliff, an American Brain Scientist, said on Thursday in New York that findings have proved for the first time, that poor sleep can also leave brains vulnerable to Alzheimer's disease.
He said sleep was valuable for brain health, particularly because brain purges amyloid, a toxin linked to Alzheimer's disease. 
Iliff said if the amyloid of brain could not be properly cleared, a person would be put at a higher risk of Alzheimer's disease.
