Below is an excerpt:
The authors wrote in their paper published in the British Medical Journal: “Sleep deprived people are perceived as less attractive, less healthy and more tired compared with when they are well rested.”
They say the results may be useful in a medical setting, helping doctors to pick up signs of ill-health in their patients.”
I am entertained by the suggestion that sleep-deprived people – doctors – are going to pick-up on this. If being sleep-deprived is a sign of ill-health, I had better switch chairs with my patients.
