Climate change The consequences include floods, droughts, famines and heat weather there are conditions. However, Danish researchers have added another factor to the list. We are talking about sleep disorders. So people during the year due to higher temperatures at night 10 may be deprived of an hour-long sleep process. University of Copenhagen Scientists have found that by the end of this century, people will sleep an average of 50-58 hours less per year. Given that the sleep process is important for human health, its disruption will have a negative impact on all areas of life. Despite the fact that people have different habits, according to scientists, it is the most optimal for sleep weather temperature 15-22 degrees Celsius contane. Any temperature above this level disrupts the sleep process and causes the person to wake up more often. However, a high temperature has a greater effect on sleep than a low temperature.
When the body temperature drops, the body receives a signal to prepare for sleep. This is the process in mammals. Average body temperature at night 1 degree Celsius becomes low. But this time it’s hot weather If the conditions are right, the body cannot cope with it. As a result, sleep disorders occur. To study this issue closely, scientists have conducted experiments on a planetary scale. So they have a total of 47,000 smart bracelets and fitness trackers from 68 countries 10 They matched more than a billion figures with local weather and climate data. As the participants continued to live their normal daily lives, the results of the experiment reflected more natural sleep patterns than those performed in the laboratory.
In this case, the probability of violation of the recommended 7-hour sleep has increased. However, people have adapted better to cold weather than to hot weather. This is a clear issue. So, blankets are cheaper than air conditioners. Although researchers do not know who uses the air conditioner, the results of the experiment show that citizens of economically developed countries are better able to cope with hot temperatures. Thus, in contrast to people living in poor countries, people living in economically developed countries are three times less affected by the hot weather. However, scientists have found that people living in tropical countries have not been able to adapt to hot nights better than others. Although experts predict that global temperatures will rise only at the end of the century, hot weather in some regions is already affecting people’s sleep.
