Skipping out on sleep may not only affect your mood contribute to those big bags under your eyes, but it could cause part of your brain to start eating other parts. While that sounds frightening, researchers say it may not be such a bad thing.

The study, which focused on mice, found that in sleep-deprived mice, two types of glial cells, astrocytes and microglial cells increased in activity. When the mice missed out on sleep, astrocytes went into overdrive and actually ate portions of synapses.

Too much of a good thing fruits anybody out and yes, the dam canni-bal thing is an aggravation. Ba'al better keep a lid on that fugly. The majority are not so susceptible and the ones that are, worthy of the sword. Bah!
