Some new studies say sleep-deprived people want unhealthy food more than people who get a full night of rest. "When you're sleep-deprived, you might not make appropriate food choices," says a researcher from UC Berkeley. The reason is that long ago, people "slept less during summer months, when they had to eat more to fatten up for the winter." But now, says another researcher, "We're fattening up year round." We'd better watch out: If Bloomberg sees this he'll probably ban late nights, too. [MSNBC/Today]
