Does your body clock say "sleep" when it's only two o'clock in the afternoon? According to the experts, most of us are simply not getting enough sleep. If we want to add years to our lives and maintain good health, there is no excuse for not keeping to a set number of sleep hours. We need to respect the normal biological timing for sleep and wakefulness.
The Human Clock was produced by Judith Kampfner. The engineer was Stephen Barsotti and the music was composed by Stuart Rosenberg. This program was funded in part by WABE FM and The Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia with additional support from The National Science Foundation and WAMU FM in Washington, D.C. The Human Clock is part of the series Exploring Space Science.
