If you're a parent, you already know that there are a whole host of common potential dangers facing babies and kids whenever they go to sleep (and just about every other time of day). But far too many adults don't realize that they also face some dangerous things that can happen when you're asleep. Yes, drifting off to dreamland isn't always safe.
When it comes down to it, a lot of people don't know all that much about sleep. You probably know that you should get somewhere between seven and nine hours of sleep each night and that sleep is important for your health, but how much do you know beyond that? Probably not a lot.
Most nights, for most people, are relatively uneventful, sleep-wise. But for others, there are serious, potentially deadly issues that can crop up when they lay down to go to bed each night. You could even have a condition that could seriously affect your sleep and health and not even know it.
Minimizing the potential risks that these — and other — common sleep dangers could present is relatively simple. You just need to be well-informed about what you might be up against and what you can do to address them.
