Obesity, Depression Root Causes of Daytime Sleepiness | Psych Central News

 Obesity and depression are the two main culprits for daytime sleepiness, according to new research.
In a series of three studies, researchers at Penn State examined a random sample of 1,741 adults and determined that obesity and emotional stress are the root causes of the prevalence of sleepiness and fatigue plaguing the country.
Researchers noted that insufficient sleep and obstructive sleep apnea also play a role, as both have been linked to high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, depression, diabetes, obesity, and accidents.
