Climate change will deprive people of good sleep - Health-Teachers

Covid-19 took the world in its severe grip and disturbed the sleep of people, now in new global research, it has been revealed that the rising temperature of the earth is also disturbing our night sleep this century. By the end of 2018, if humans do not control carbon emissions, the situation will take the worst shape.

Researchers at the University of Copenhagen in Denmark studied data from sleep tracking bands worn on the wrists of more than 47,000 people in 68 countries between 2015 and 2017 to predict the future impact on our sleep.


In the study, the researchers found that due to rising temperatures, the average sleep duration of people around the world has decreased by 44 hours every year, which will increase to 50 to 58 hours by 2099. This reduction amounts to a little less than 10 minutes per night.

According to the research, people in low-income countries will be most affected by the negative effects of temperature on the amount of sleep, including women and the elderly.

Overall, older adults will go to bed later, wake up earlier, and have shorter sleep durations between hot nights, leading to several negative effects on their physical and mental health.

Rising global temperatures will decrease the total amount of sleep we get because our core body temperature has to drop for us to sleep. This is becoming increasingly difficult over time as the world around us is getting hotter and hotter.


"Our bodies are largely capable of maintaining a stable core body temperature," said study author Kelton Miner. It is something that our lives depend on.

He said that every night this ability works best without bringing it into our consciousness. It dilates our veins and increases blood flow to our feet and hands and dissipates body heat to the surrounding environment.

Kelton Minor also said that for this transfer of temperature, the temperature of the atmosphere around us must be lower than our temperature.
