Sleep disorder is a rampant problem in the US, with over 40 million Americans currently diagnosed according to the NIH. There is a clear association between sleep disorder and a wide range of other human disorders -performance deficiencies, psychiatric illnesses, heart disease, obesity and more - but in spite of this there is not yet a convenient overview on the market detailing the impact of obesity, age, diabetes and diet on sleep duration and attendant health outcomes. This volume focuses on the interaction between sleep and these factors, with special attention being paid to the potential for neurological modulation of sleep via diet. The volume aid readers in understanding the role each of these factors plays in sleep architecture and its regulation by circadian biology and neurology.

  • Aids in understanding the impact of age, diet, obesity and disease on sleep
  • Offers focus on neurological changes that affect metabolism
  • Explores diabetes induced sleep problems
  • Aid to understanding the multifactorial causes of age-related sleep dysfunction
  • Addresses selected studies of nutraceuticals affecting sleep for potential application clinically
  • Discusses major impact on sleep disorders by caffeine and alcohol

Ronald Ross Watson, PhD, is a Professor of Health Promotion Sciences at the University of Arizona, Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health. Dr. Watson began his research in public health at the Harvard School of Public Health as a fellow in 1971 doing field work on vaccines in Saudi Arabia. He has done clinical studies in Colombia, Iran, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and USA which provides a broad international view of public health. He has served in the military reserve hospital for 17 years with extensive training in medical responses to disasters as the chief biochemistry officer of a general hospital, retiring at a Lt. Colonel. He is a distinguished member of several national and international nutrition, immunology, and cancer societies. Dr. Watson's career has involved studying many lifestyle aspects for their uses in health promotion. He has edited over 100 biomedical reference books, particularly in health, and 450 papers and chapters. His teaching and research focuses on alcohol, tobacco and drugs of abuse in heart function and disease in mouse models.
