Something Else To Keep You Awake at Night

While the brain sleeps, it clears out harmful toxins, a process that may reduce the risk of Alzheimer's, researchers say.

During sleep, the flow of cerebrospinal fluid in the brain increases dramatically, washing away harmful waste proteins that build up between brain cells during waking hours, a study of mice found.

I saw an article about this on the BBC and thought about posting it.  Maybe the toxins prevented me.  :)

Not everything I type or have typed in the past is reflective of the teaching of the Orthodox Church, or may not reflect my contemporary views on a subject. (5/30/2015)

I am scaling back posting because the crack in my computer screen makes it harder and harder to type.

Nope, not getting enough sleep will prevent you from thinking.

Viewing that photo is enough to keep me awake at night.
From where did you get that zombie party?

Oh, please don't tell.

EDIT: Great! Awesome! Wonderful! You deleted that photo. It was positively nightmarish.

Quote from: The Life of Ivan Neronov
[Ecclesiastics] conspired against him because they hated his teaching for its zealous emphasis on proper Christian conduct: with great courage he denounced all whom he saw behaving in an ungodly fashion... [As such] he was deprived of his priestly rank, bound in iron chains, and broken down in jails.

I love the sleep where you are so dead tired that when you go to sleep you are so deep into it that it feels like you are close to death.

How do they know what it feels like to be close to death?

If sleeping possibly reduces your risk of Alzheimer's...

And smoking possibly blocks the plaques associated with Alzheimers...

We can only wait for the Daily Mail to run a headline, "Sleeping has same health consequences as smoking."
Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.

Flawed research can give interesting results. Was that research funded by the American tobacco industries?
