Insomnia Tears Hole in State Budget

According to a new study, insomnia tears a hole in the state budget.

For the first time, Swedish scientists of the renowned Sahlgrenska University Hospital in Gothenburg have calculated the correlation between insomnia and its economic effects on society.

The scientists found out that 1.5 million Swedes suffer from insomnia, which costs the state almost 250 million dollars every year.

Especially women aged 55 and over as well as young men are at risk to suffer from insomnia.

Wednesday saw the beginning of Sweden’s first ever scientific congress on insomnia in the southern city of Skövde.
