Have you been complaining about disturbed sleep lately and blaming stress for it? Well, it may not be not be the case. According to a new study, presented at the ATS 2017 International Conference, if you haven't been able to sleep well recently you can blame it on the air pollution in your city as researchers have found a link between nitrogen dioxide (NO2) in the air and sleep deprivation. The rising levels of air pollution, especially in urban towns, can not only increase allergies and breathing problems but it can also ruin your sleep!
Air pollution, primarily because of the increasing traffic in cities, has become a menace worldwide. According to a 2016 World Health Organisation report, more than 80% of people living in urban areas are exposed to bad air quality levels that exceed the WHO's limits. If you are experiencing sleeping disorders and varying sleeping patterns, air pollution and not stress can be one of the reasons.
