Teen sleeping patterns may influence their risk for common illnesses

But those who aren't getting enough sleep may be setting themselves up for illness.  A recent study found that teens were more likely to get sick if they were getting shorter amounts of sleep each night. The study involved a small group of high school students, but the findings match up with health risks found from too little sleep in past studies.
