Aruni Bhatnagar, Ph.D. found reduced sleep linked to air pollution, heat, carbon dioxide and noise

Led by Dr. Aruni Bhatnagar, a recent study by researchers from the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Louisville's Christina Lee Brown Envirome Institute reveals that high levels of air pollution, carbon dioxide, noise, and temperature in the bedroom can adversely affect sleep efficiency. Utilizing participant data from UofL's Green Heart Project, which investigates the impact of tree planting on cardiovascular health, the study emphasizes the importance of understanding and improving the bedroom environment to enhance sleep quality. Further research is needed to explore interventions that can reduce exposure to these sleep-disrupting factors. Read more about the study here.
