Dead Tired – SBS 2 part Documentary – May 27 & June 3, 2009

Breaking news I found on the Insight website is that the Danish Government recently compensated 39 nurses and flight attendants who developed breast cancer after careers of working night shifts.

“They are currently the only government in the world who have formally recognised a link between working night shift and the onset of cancer.”?

As if the evidence around cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, depression, anxiety, accidents, male sexual dysfunction, memory impairment, stroke, morning headaches, excessive night urination, etc etc wasn’t enough!

Insomnia, now the world’s most common medical disorder – will be the subject of a two-part documentary on SBS Dead Tired.

Episode 1 – Wednesday May 27 @ 8.30 pm – Awake is the New Sleep – how sleep deprivation causes sickness and death in today’s society.

Episode 2 – Wednesday June 3 @ 8.30 pm – Planet Insomnia – The causes, consequences and cures for insomnia.

Don’t miss either of these shows …your life might be dependent on it.

Hi Jennifer
I’ve just had a look for them on the SBS website, but I can’t see them anywhere. You can get copies of anything that has appeared in the media at places like Media Monitors, but they charge. YOu could also search YouTube to see if they got up there.
