Bad sleep 'dramatically' alters body

Wonder why you can easily catch a cold after a poor sleep? Wonder why you can't recall information from a lecture after 4 hours of sleep?

A run of poor sleep can have a potentially profound effect on the internal workings of the human body, say UK researchers.

Blood samples were analyzed comparing periods of plenty of sleep versus sleep deprivation. There was a dramatic change in the function of many different kinds of genes!!
