Dr. John Swartzberg, chair of Berkeley Wellness' editorial board: "A good way to get impetigo, boils, and other types of dermatitis. Plus, it will leave a disgusting smell on your body when you wake up."
A three-Red-Bull-a-day habit
"I worked at the student rec center in the mornings, sometimes it opened at 5:30am, so I would regularly drink up to three sugar-free Red Bulls." -- Sarah F*
Dr. Swartzberg: "A good way to be on the road to obesity, diabetes, palpitations, tremors, jitteriness, and lack of concentration. Besides all that, it's a great idea!"
Thinking sleep is optional
"I would not sleep for over a week at a time, and not just during finals either. (I did this so often I started liking the buzz.)" -- Max A*
Dr. Haythe: "Terrible idea! Lack of sleep impairs cognition, reflex time, coordination, and mood! Get your beauty and brain sleep."
Dr. Swartzberg: "Can precipitate mania or depression. Also, a good way to fail school because concentration and retention of material becomes impossible."
Dr. Hollingsworth: "This is just practice for having children, where you don't sleep for months at a time."
