Epidemiologists Debunk 13 Coronavirus Myths

The coronavirus, now known as COVID-19, originated in Wuhan, China, and has spread to at least 26 other countries. Syra Madad, the senior director of the NYC Health + Hospitals System-wide Special Pathogens Program, and Stephen Morse, a professor of epidemiology at Columbia University, debunked 13 of the most common myths about the coronavirus. They explained how packages from China won't make you sick and that getting COVID-19 is not a death sentence. They also debunked the idea that it affects only older people — anyone can get the coronavirus.

Update: The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now recommends that if you must go out, wear a cloth or fabric face mask. The change in recommendation comes as emerging evidence suggests people can transmit the coronavirus to others before they even know they’ve been infected.

The CDC also recommends that those suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19 should restrict contact with pets or other animals. The change in recommendation comes as a small number of pets outside of the US have been reported to be infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 after close contact with people with COVID-19. But there is no current evidence that pets can spread COVID-19 to people or other animals.

Everything You Know About Sleep Is Wrong

Everything that you've been told about sleep is more or less wrong. Today we are going to bust some of the most common myths about sleeping.

We all need it, and most of us could use more. We’re talking about sleep. It is estimated that we spend about 1/3 of our lives sleeping, yet it remains a mysterious process. Night after night, we shut down for several hours during sleep, and everything from hormone release to tissue repair goes on in our bodies without us even noticing it. Our brains generate dreams that many of us can hardly remember or make sense of. There are also nightmares, sleep disorders, and so much more. “We still have so much to learn about why we sleep, and how sleep works,” writes clinical psychologist Michael J. Breus in a Psychology Today article. Because there is still so much that is unknown about sleeping, it is understandable that myths about sleep have emerged over the years. We will discuss some of these myths in this episode of The Infographics Show, “12 myths about sleep that you didn’t know.”

How to Fall Asleep in 2 Minutes According to the US Navy


What Makes Sleep Paralysis So Terrifying?



There has been much debate over who is better off in life – early risers (“larks”) or late risers (“night owls”). It turns out that your health and success in life are not determined solely by what time of the morning you get up. According to a BBC article, there is a study that “showed that night owls are as healthy and wise as morning types – and a little bit wealthier.” Examples of successful night owls include Buzzfeed CEO Jonah Peretti, author James Joyce, and Winston Churchill.

And not everyone is meant to be an early riser. What determines whether you are or not is something called a chronotype. Sleep expert Dr. Colleen Carney describes it as a “’sleep window inside of us.’” She explains that “’it is genetic” and “developmental factors” also play a role. For instance, young children tend to go to sleep earlier and rise earlier, but the internal sleep clock shifts in puberty so that teenagers want to sleep later and rise later.

#11. Getting less than 8 hours of sleep a night is bad for you.

While some people need 8 hours of sleep to feel refreshed, other people can get by with a little less sleep. You might even live longer if you sleep a little less. However, the NHS cautions that sleep needs vary by age and other factors, so don’t think you are more likely to die early if you “do not follow the ’standard’ pattern for sleep.”

#10. When you wake up at night, you lose sleep for only the amount of time you were awake.

Getting up for even 15 minutes in the middle of the night can cause you to wake up feeling tired. As anyone who has cared for a newborn can tell you, you will feel even more fatigued if you wake up several times a night. According to one source, a 2014 study of people who had 8 hours of interrupted sleep and those who had only 4 hours of sleep showed that “the mood and attention of folks with interrupted sleep were just as bad as those who slept for only four hours.” Depression and irritability were common in both groups, and their ability to perform an attention task “got worse the longer they kept at it.”

MYTH : A pillow is just a pillow, it doesn't affect my body & sleep quality

FACT : Sleep is a period of recovery for your body & mind. That is why sleep is so important for your overall well being. And your body remains in a sleeping position for a long period of time . 8 HOURS A DAY, EVERYDAY, to be exact.

You wouldn't choose a pair of cheap sandals if you were planning to walk for 8 hours EVERYDAY, would you?

Similarly, if you do not get good neck support during sleep, you are doing harm to your neck for 8 hours a day, EVERYDAY. But not just physically, because unconsciously, you will wake up to readjust your neck and GUESS WHAT, it upsets your sleep quality, EVERYDAY.

Can you still afford to neglect your body?
