Doctor reveals the consequences of living on high and low floors

The floor of the house on which a person lives can affect his psyche and somatic health. On Friday, March 3, told the publication “Gazeta.Ru” Yulia Kovalenko, therapist at the Medical On clinic in Novosibirsk.

So, the inhabitants of the first floors are more likely to experience diseases of the pulmonary system and reduced immunity. But people on the upper floors often have anxiety disorders, as well as headaches and problems with blood pressure.

Moreover, the lower a person lives, the closer he is to the basement, where there is a risk of the spread of fungi and mold. Also near these floors, dust and exhaust fumes from cars passing nearby and warming up often accumulate.

“Such exposures are extremely dangerous. The thing is that our body is not able to cope with such aggressive agents without harming health, it exceeds the physiological capabilities of detoxification systems,” Kovalenko explained.

At the same time, residents of floors above the seventh may be threatened with industrial smog from enterprises. And residents of floors above the 25th may face extremely dry air that enters their apartments through the air conditioning system. Even in skyscrapers there is no way to open a window for natural ventilation.

In addition, the therapist drew attention to the fact that residents of very high floors can suffer due to various vibrations, low-frequency infrasonic vibrations and atmospheric pressure drops.

“From these factors, you can expect panic attacks, sleep disturbances and insomnia, anxiety disorders, headaches, diseases of the ENT organs and, as a result, susceptibility to respiratory infections,” she added.

In this regard, the expert advised choosing floors from the third to the seventh for housing.

Earlier, on March 1, Natalya Sorokina, an endocrinologist at Invitro, told Izvestia that in the spring many people feel changes in their mood and well-being. The expert attributed this to the restructuring of the hormonal background, in particular, the levels of luteinizing hormone, progesterone and prolactin, melatonin, serotonin, cortisol.

Moreover, Sorokina mentioned that the peak of melatonin production comes in the spring, which is formed only at night and is responsible for falling asleep quickly and quality sleep.
