Because scientists at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and academic researchers have observed that poor sleep is strongly linked with traffic deaths, obesity, chronic diseases and teen risk behaviors, improving sleep health could help impact the agency's battles with those issues, said Anne G. Wheaton, an epidemiologist in the CDC Division of Population Health.

Wheaton said that for many people, sleep simply doesn’t rank high on their list of priorities. As a result, they don’t make time to get the sleep they need or they may do things such as drinking stimulants before bedtime that make it hard to sleep.
