So some researchers found correlations between high blood pressure & lack of sleep in teens. Toss in with other sleep deprivation issues in teens and you'd think high schools would start later.

If you're wondering, yes, a different study found that poor sleep is associated with hypertension in adult women, and associated with "higher levels of biomarkers associated with elevated risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes". (Correlations of correlations is indirect, but it's what I found.)

Of course, less sleep is also correlated with mood swings and depression....
