A recent study might suggest that sleep disturbances and sleep apnea might be more present in minority groups. Some findings were that blacks were most likely to have short sleep durations and that Chinese were least likely reported to have insomnia. Sleep apnea is a risk factor for strokes, diabetes, and many other conditions. This sleep disorder is most common in middle aged to older adults. Knowing about sleep disorders and what they can lead to helps researchers today figure out how they can prevent them in the future.
