Poor sleep damages your brain

Ed Park, MD News 1 Comment

Not only is sleep good for you. Lack of sleep is bad. It even causes measurable brain damage.  They taught us in medical school that you don’t make new brain cells. Totally false. You need to make up to 10,000 new brain cells every night. So whatever you do, make sure you sleep well tonight and every night.

I graduated from Harvard with honors in Biological Anthropology prior to earning my Medical Degree and Masters in Public Health from Columbia University.

In 2007, I became the nineteenth patient to sign up for the use of a herbally-extracted telomerase activator.

The results were so positive that I founded Recharge Biomedical Clinic in 2008 and have since become the leading medical expert in this exciting new field of regenerative medicine treating over 1,300 patients with this exciting new telomerase activation medicine.

I won two Houston Film Festival Awards for my screenplays about Hypatia of Alexandria and Ed Brown of Kentucky.

In 2010 I wrote and self-published a Sci-Fi Graphic Novel called MAXIMUM LIFESPAN

In 2013, I wrote and published "Telomere Timebombs; Defusing the Terror of Aging"

  1. At one time I had a small catering business and at busy times I would work 18 hour days for days at a time. One morning I awoke not sure if it was dawn or dusk, not aware of what day it was and finally I couldn’t remember who I was. It is no wonder that sleep deprivation is used a form of torture and interrogation. It makes you question the practice of 48 hour shifts for young interns in hospital emergency rooms. Without sleep our seemingly firm grip of reality is tenuous at best and disconnected at worst. Memories are consolidated while sleeping.
