Good Luck.
It will come as no [surprise / surprising] to know that a lack [of / for] sleep isn't good for us. A new report suggests sleep deprivation can result [on / in] long-term health issues and even [dead / death] . It also says that women are more likely to experience difficulties sleeping than men. The report is [based / basted] on a survey of 4,100 British adults and is called 'Reclaim Your Sleep'. It is from a British group called the Sleep Apnoea Trust Association. Apnoea is the [temporal / temporary] cessation of breathing, especially [while / during] sleep. Almost half of the women surveyed (43 per cent) said they did not get [enough / plenty] sleep. This compared to 36 per cent of men who said they did not sleep [good / well] . Women were also more [prose / prone] than men to waking up during the night.

Health experts have warned that [feeling / felt] exhausted due to a lack of sleep could be a [sign / signage] of a serious underlying medical condition. However, many women are unaware of the [dangerous / dangers] , with only a [quarter / quartile] seeing a doctor about sleeplessness. Professor John Stradling of Oxford University said: "Often women think that feeling exhausted is just part of [modernity / modern] life when in [fact / factual] it could be something more serious." He added that not [treating / treatment] sleep deficiency, "leaves women at risk of reduced quality of [live / life] and serious health conditions". In more severe cases, when left untreated, [conditions / conditioning] like sleep apnoea can kill people because it can bring [off / on] heart attacks and strokes.
