Climate changes can cause lack of sleep, says study
A recent study says that climate change can affect a good night’s sleep. Hotter temperatures during the nighttime can cause lost sleep and change in sleep patterns.
Increased temperatures during the night can also lead to other health problems, which include increased emergency room visits and increased heat-related deaths.
The research found that people over 65 are twice as likely to have trouble sleeping on a hot night compared to young people.
It showed that on average, by 2050 increasing temperatures will cause six extra nights of lack of sleep per 100 individuals, and by 2099 it will cause an increase of around 14 nights of poor sleep per 100 individuals.
