Blog Post by Apollia, owner and administrator of Non24.Com and Non24.Org

I recently posted this at the NHLBI Strategic Visioning Forum, where people can post ideas and comments, and vote on them:

Do our modern "traditional" sleep schedules defy nature?

Addition, 5/15/2015, 2:09 AM EDT: I also posted this:

Would unconditional basic income improve people's health & ease poverty better than conventional welfare programs?

Addition, 5/15/2015, 5:13 AM EDT: And this:

How common is Omega 3 nutritional deficiency, and how can people make sure they're getting enough Omega 3?

End of additions.

Votes and comments are welcome!

My post is on topic, because according to this FAQ page, the NHLBI (National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute) is interested in sleep problems also.

Quoted from the FAQ page:

"3. Why is the Institute refreshing the Strategic Vision?

The NHLBI community has the power to build upon exciting new scientific discoveries and emerging technologies that offer great promise for the prevention and treatment of heart, lung, blood, and sleep (HLBS) diseases."

There are also plenty of other ideas related to sleep and circadian stuff which you might like to comment or vote on:

Search: "sleep"

Search: "circadian"

And here's the idea which drew my attention to the NHLBI Strategic Visioning Forum:

Improve ineffective treatments for circadian rhythm disorders

Addition, 9:50 PM EDT: This also is a good one to vote for:

Elucidate the different causes of circadian disorders, and tailor the treatment to the cause

I'm sure there are plenty of others that are worth voting for, but, I can't possibly specifically point out all of them, because I have lots of things I need to get done.

End of addition.

I heard about the NHLBI Strategic Visioning Forum via the Niteowl mailing list.

The deadline for submissions, votes, and comments is very close - May 15th at 11:59 PM PT.

Sorry for taking so long to notice or post about the NHLBI Strategic Visioning Forum. I'm afraid I'm going to continue to be usually rather quiet and not at all consistent about posting interesting things, because I'm currently plagued with other things I need to get done.

Also, sorry that Non24.Com and Non24.Org are, for now, rather quiet and boring.

But, fortunately, the Niteowl mailing list and the Circadian Sleep Disorders Network are wonderful resources for people with sleep issues. I highly recommend them.
