Experts also expressed a common mistake made in society during sleep. Here are the details…
Sleep is one of the basic needs of the human body. Experts state that an adult person should sleep an average of 6-8 hours a day.
However, research shows that too little or too much sleep time can lead to serious health problems such as heart attack and stroke.
The amount of sleep required for a healthy life may vary from person to person. Factors such as genetic characteristics, age, season and occupation can affect sleep duration.
However, experts say that it is ideal for an adult to sleep an average of 6-8 hours a day.
However, many people choose to wear socks to keep their feet warm while sleeping.
However, a study revealed that socks contain as many bacteria as fecal bacteria. These bacteria can cause dangerous diseases.
RESEARCH TO BE CONSIDERED!
The research in question was conducted by a company called MattressNextDay. This study found that sleeping with dirty socks can expose your sheets and body to bacterial contamination. For the study, socks were taken from different people who wore the same socks from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.
These people wore socks with shoes, while playing sports and going about their daily activities.
IT CAN CAUSE RESPIRATORY AND URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS
When the socks were analyzed, the researchers found that half of the socks contained the same bacteria commonly found in cockroaches and feces. These bacteria are called Pseudomonas aeruginosa and can cause respiratory and urinary tract infections.
EXPERTS WARNING! THESE PEOPLE ARE AT MORE RISK
Dr. Deborah Lee stated that these bacteria pose a risk especially for people with underlying health problems.
Dr. Deborah Lee said, “Pseudomonas infection is dangerous for people with weakened immune systems, such as diabetes, cystic fibrosis, burns, cancer, organ transplant recipients and newborn babies. “We must keep pseudomonas levels low to protect these vulnerable groups.” said.
PAY ATTENTION TO CLEANING!
Pseudomonas likes to live in a moist and wet environment. Therefore, your mattress provides a suitable environment for harmful bacteria such as pseudomonas, staphylococcus aureus and E.coli. Dr. Lee continued:
“You sweat in a hot bed at night. This makes it a perfect habitat for pathogens. If you want to wear socks to bed, I recommend you go to bed with clean pajamas and clean socks.”
The expert reminded that clothes that come into contact with the body should be washed every day.
IT IMPROVES YOUR SLEEP QUALITY
Dr. Lee also added:
“For you to fall asleep, your body temperature must drop. People with cold hands and feet have a harder time falling asleep. Wearing socks warms your feet, increases blood circulation and dilates your blood vessels to remove heat from the body. “A sleep study conducted on young men found that those who wore socks to bed fell asleep 7.5 minutes faster, slept 32 minutes longer, and woke up 7.5 times less frequently at night.”
