Losing Sleep over Money or Money over Sleep?  Sleep over It!
Its Abuzz, in America, the ZZZZZZZZ Magic .Americans seem to have scared away the sleep bug, and simply find themselves awake every sleeping hour! And this has led to people making money over those who are sleepless, and willing to cough up precious deutshe all for those forty winks!

Reading the prevailing 'Sleep' statistics would perhaps jolt anybody from a deep sleep. It is estimated that Americans have spent about $2.1 billion and about 35 million prescriptions for sleeping pills in 2004, according to Medco Health Solutions, Inc. Z pills—like Ambien and Lunesta, are ruling the sleepless , and rendering the drug market alive and kicking.

Sleep centers are mushrooming by the dozen with promises of detecting dormant sleep disorders, and making hay while the sun shines. So, insomniacs had better wake up to these sleep strategists or sleep tacticians, with paraphernalia in tow, that use air mattresses and monitors to record how people sleep or don't sleep!
