Dangers of Sleeping in a Too Cold room

Most people prefer to sleep in a cool room so that the air conditioner is installed in a cold enough temperature. But according to a study in Japan as it turned out the way sleep is not healthy.

The study found that people who slept the night in the room temperature is too cold (around 14 degrees Celsius for example) tend to have systolic and diastolic blood pressure were higher in the morning.

Our blood pressure will naturally rise in the morning when we woke up. But if we put the room temperature is too cold, the blood vessels will constrict and the heart to work harder to keep our bodies warm.

According Keigo Saeki, an epidemiologist from Japan 's Nara Medical University, these conditions will last about two hours. In the long run this is bad for your heart.

In a study conducted Saeki, the people who slept in the room temperature below 15 degrees Celsius has an increase in blood pressure between 6-8 percent compared to those who sleep in temperatures around 24 degrees Celsius.

High blood pressure can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. Blood pressure usually occurs gradually. If not treated, excessive blood pressure can damage organs and tissues. The higher the blood pressure stage, the greater the risk of damage inflicted.
