Study finds link between obesity and sleep patterns
from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Much like the age-old chicken and egg question, scientists have wondered which came first, the lack of sleep or the obesity. A new study by the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine might flip the script on what many believed to be the correlation. According to Science Daily, a growing body of research has suggested that poor sleep quality is linked to an increased risk of obesity by deregulating appetite, which in turn leads to more calorie consumption. But the Pennsylvania study suggests the opposite might be true.
