Some men are habitual of wearing belts tightly. This small habit might cost you big in the long run. While it is okay to wear a tight belt occasionally, but doing this daily is not good for your well-being.
A belt puts pressure on your lower abdomen which is a vital connecting part of the body as many important veins pass through that area. As belts compress the stomach, this is likely to affect the functioning of those veins which directly impacts your health in multiple ways.
It is often seen that people wear tight belts to show their stomach less, to hide obesity or due to habit. At the same time, there are many such belts in the market for weight loss and to hide obesity, which keep your stomach tight. All these can be harmful to health.
See how tight belts can be dangerous for your health:
1. Heartburn problem: Wearing tight belts throughout the day puts you at greater risk of acid reflux or heartburn. Actually, the tight belt puts pressure on your stomach, due to which the acid made to digest food crosses its limit and reaches the lungs and throat.
This is why people wearing tight belts often have problems with chest irritation, indigestion, constipation, and indigestion. In the long run, this problem can also cause throat cancer.
2. Spinal problem: Tight belts at the waist change the way men use their abdominal muscles when they are standing. This is due to the extra pressure placed on those muscles. This extra pressure can cause spinal cord stiffness. Besides, tying more tight belts also changes the angle of the center of gravity and pelvic area. Besides, it also puts additional pressure on the knee joints.
3. Hernia: Wearing tight belts can also make you a victim of serious illnesses like a hernia. In the case of Hiatal Hernia, the upper part of the stomach comes out of the diaphragm due to the weakening of its diaphragm, due to which it is unable to stop the acid produced inside it. These acids reach the stomach and irritate, due to which we feel burning sensation and severe pain in our chest.
4. Infertility: Wearing tight belts for a long time can lead to decreased fertility of both men and women, increasing the risk of infertility.
In fact, wearing a tight belt creates pressure on the pelvic area, where vital organs are associated with reproduction. Also, due to tight belts, air does not reach the private organs properly and the body temperature (body heat) increases, which reduces sp*rm count.
