Lost sleep leads to lost brain cells, says study | Fox News.

According to this article, significant sleep loss can mean irreversible damage to brain cells.  This article said sleep loss for a few hours- like staying up late to study for an exam is not an issue.  The concern is for shift workers such as nurses or law-enforcement, or perhaps people with insomnia.  Missing large chunks of sleep over time can literally kill brain cells.  So, what can you do?  Request a work schedule that gives you the maximum amount of sleep possible and if you struggle with insomnia, talk to your doctor.
