Too little, too low-quality sleep has long been linked with a host of health issues, including weight gain, depression and strokes.

Jeffrey Iliff, an American Brain Scientist, said on Thursday in New York that findings have proved for the first time, that poor sleep can also leave brains vulnerable to Alzheimer’s disease.

He said sleep was valuable for brain health, particularly because brain purges amyloid, a toxin linked to Alzheimer’s disease.

Iliff said if the amyloid of brain could not be properly cleared, a person would be put at a higher risk of Alzheimer’s disease.

Alzheimer’s disease is progressive mental deterioration that can occur in middle or old age, due to generalized degeneration of the brain. It is the commonest cause of premature senility.

Symptoms may include:
  • increased memory loss and confusion.
  • problems recognizing family and friends.
  • inability to learn new things.
  • difficulty carrying out multistep tasks such as getting dressed.
  • problems coping with new situations.
  • hallucinations, delusions, and paranoia.
  • impulsive behavior
