5. Lack of Sleep

Sleep deprivation has so many negative health issues, it’s hard to know where to start! For the sake of this article, we will focus solely on the damage it does to the liver.

The Journal of Anatomy published a study that showed that a lack of sleep causes oxidative stress to the liver. The University Of Pennsylvania School Of Medicine also showed that those who work night shifts and swing shifts generally suffer from sleep deprivation and often have a wide range of health issues including diabetes, heart disease, and obesity.

It was also found that those who lack sleep don’t have livers that process fat as efficiently as it should and, instead, stored the fat.
