Us Researchers Have Found That Turning On The Lights While Sleeping Affects Heart Recovery

- May 30, 2019-

A few days ago, a study in the United States national institutes of health funding, such as the United States and West Virginia university school of medicine, the university of Texas at Austin, organization of neural scientists have discovered that the white light of the night (usually used to light the room light), brain cell death and inflammation with high mortality is a link between heart disease patients.


The team reconstructed cardiac arrest in an animal model and had three groups of subjects spend the night in dim red, dim white and dark light.After seven nights, the researchers assessed their health.


The results showed that exposure to white light at night led to a variety of adverse outcomes: there was no difference in mortality between those exposed to white light at night and those exposed to red light and those exposed to darkness.The researchers believe that exposure to white light at night affects the hippocampus, a part of the brain that plays a key role in memory formation, and causes a more inflammatory response.


This suggests that changing the color of the night light, from broad white to red or turning off the lights, is associated with a better prognosis for heart disease.The findings, published in the journal of experimental neurology, could help hospitalized cardiac arrest patients recover if future studies prove that the same conclusions apply to clinical populations, since the current findings come from animals.
