On today’s Your Call we talk about the health effects of long-term sleep loss and what role race and economics play.

According to the National Sleep Foundation, at least 40 million Americans suffer from sleep disorders. How much sleep do we need? Join us at 10am PST or leave a comment here.  What effect does sleep (or the lack of it) have on our bodies?  And how could we create a more sleep-friendly society?  It's Your Call with Rose Aguilar and you.
