Study suggests kids should unplug before sleep
By Ronnie Cohen NEW YORK (Reuters Health) – Kids who regularly plugged into social networking sites before bedtime reported sleeping nearly an hour less on school nights than those who rarely connected online, a new study shows. “Using technology in the bedroom may result in sleep loss, delays in initiating sleep, daytime sleepiness and more,” the study’s lead author, Teresa Arora, told Reuters Health in an email. “In turn, this may affect daytime performance, particularly at school,” Arora, from Weill Cornell Medical College in Doha, Qatar, said. Social networking was associated with the biggest loss of sleep.
