Scientists analyze the disposable sheets and get amazing results
Australia's "Technology Insider Information Network" recently reported that Philip Tirno, a microbiologist and pathologist at New York University School of Medicine, found that there are fungal spores, bacteria, animal dander, pollen, soil, and disposable sheets. Lint, disposable bed material finishing agent, coloring materials and various excretions from the body (such as sweat, sputum, vaginal and anal secretions, urine, skin cells, etc.), various oils and creams applied to the body After being taken to bed. In addition, some people eat in bed, and the food that is dropped also provides a good living environment for these organisms. Scientists around the world are trying to identify and quantify the various pollutants and allergens that are not only in your bed but also active throughout the home, which can have a negative impact on human health.
Even people who think they are relatively clean can't escape the invasion of microorganisms. Ordinary people produce about 200 pounds of sweat per year in bed, which is an "ideal fungal medium" at high humidity. A 2015 study evaluated the degree of fungal contamination of disposable sheets. The researchers found that pillows made of feathers and synthetic fibers for 1.5 to 20 years contained 4 to 17 different types of fungi. Over time, the amount of fungus, bacteria and many other debris accumulated can have alarming consequences. Gravity will cause all these debris to settle to the core of the pillow and mattress, and the average person will inhale the debris for 8 hours a day.
Tirno said that one out of every six people suffers from allergies, while one third of ordinary people spend their lives in bed. Scientists speculate that disposable sheets may be the source of allergic diseases. These allergens can cause your nose to plug, affect your sleep, trigger or exacerbate allergies, or aggravate asthma.
Experts remind that these dirty things usually accumulate to a significant extent within 1-2 weeks, so disposable sheets are best cleaned every 2 weeks.
