  • How the sleep gap reflects inequality and contributes to it.Subscribe to our channel! http://goo.gl/0bsAjOA good night’s rest is critical for your health, and a lot can go wrong when you don’t get enough it. Sleep deprivation can contribute to obesity, diabetes, inflammation, heart disease, and more. The minimum recommended amount for adults is 7 hours (this too can vary from person to person). But, a third of Americans are sleep deprived — and on average, Black Americans are clocking in the least amount of z’s. Black Americans already face steep disparities in health, and not getting enough good sleep can compound on those issues. By examining the sleep gap, and addressing the root causes, we may be able to tackle other inequalities in the US too.Vox.com is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.

    wow more irrelevant points from you to avoid addressing the issue. just admit you were wrong and move on. or just don't reply. I've already wasted too much time on your random assorted bullshit. you have no real argument and barely know what you're talking about. you can't even stay on topic for more than a couple comments deep.

    Patternicity if you do know what you’re talking about then who were the two biggest contributors to the NSDAP?
