In Europe, about 1/3 of people suffer from sleep problems, but only 20% get medical treatment, reports Euronews in a televised segment.
Claudio Rocco, euronews:
“Has there been an increase in sleep problems in recent decades, or have we simply become more aware of them?”
Doctor Alain Nicolas:
“Progress in sleep medicine over the past 30 to 40 years has made us more aware of these problems, especially in Europe. But on top of that, a growing number of people are complaining about sleep problems in general, and about insomnia in particular, because there is much more social pressure about the issue of sleep.”
