Researchers say that widespread misinformation about sleep is damaging human health and emotional well-being.

A study by a team of New York University researchers found that the findings were strongly scientific and that it was important to correct misconceptions about sleep.

The study lists one of the most common misconceptions about sleep.

Five or less sleep is also healthy

Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher is said to have had a very short sleep. German Chancellor Angela Merkel is also said to be asleep. Many business people and entrepreneurs are also said to be fed.

But researchers say that five or fewer hours of sleep is wrong and that it can be dangerous.

Dr. Rebecca Robbins, one of the researchers, is at risk for heart attack, stroke and short life expectancy.

Instead, her doctor advises everyone to get seven or eight hours of uninterrupted sleep.

Alcohol helps with sleep

Alcohol is said to cause a good night's sleep before going to bed, but this is not true, say the researchers.

Wine, whiskey, and beer do not help you sleep well, say researchers

"It may help you fall asleep right away, but it will disturb your sleep at night," said Dr. Robbins.

They say it interferes with REM (rapid eye movement), which is especially good for learning and memory.

Alcohol-induced bladder swelling is another cause of sleep disturbances. Researchers have concluded that alcohol is generally more harmful than sleep.

Watching TV relaxes

Many believe that if you watch TV and relax, you can get a good night's sleep. But Dr. Robbins says that TV is the cause of change and sleep deprivation.

According to him, the news in the movie is more stressful than relaxing.

Another point is that the blue light released by TVs, like smartphones and tablets, slows down the production of the sleep hormone melatonin.

Sleeping in bed also helps with sleep

There are many people who go to bed at night and wait for sleep.

But Dr. Robbins says this is not true and that our brain is linked to sleep deprivation.

According to him, only fifteen minutes is enough for healthy people to fall asleep.

The doctor advises people not to go to bed and stay in bed for more than fifteen minutes, but to do something that does not require them to change their mind or do something else.

Snoring is okay

While snoring is not harmful, it is a sign of insomnia.

Snoring can make people suddenly unable to breathe.

Researchers say that snoring is especially dangerous.
