Computer Stroke! The Economic Class Syndrome And Computer Addiction
To all computer addicts, have you ever heard of the Computer Stroke? There are myriads of people who sit in front of their computers unaware of the danger of this habit. Computers have their benefits but they have their disbenefits too.
Sitting in front of your computer for hours increases the chance of having a stroke which is called nowadays: the computer stroke, and which is also called: Economic Class Syndrome. This ECS is another kind of strokes that attack passengers in the long distance flights even if you are not a possible candidate.
According to WIKIPEDIA: “Traveller's Thrombosis is the occurrence of deep vein thrombosis in travellers. The term Economy class syndrome has also been used to describe this. Most commonly reported in people who have travelled long distances by aircraft”.
Most probably, this is due to an immobility of the passenger for a long time besides the artificial pressure generated in the plane.
So, the optimal solution for this syndrome and for the computer stroke is to occasionally walk and move your body a bit and this includes all hubbers here who sit out there facing their computers for hours. However, the stroke resulting from computers is more risky because we use them everywhere we go, so the usage hours are dramatically increased.
Thus, it’s highly recommended to exercise every once in a while, take some rest and move away from the computer. Moreover, It’s also most likely that the eyesight gets affected specially if your eyes become itchy or red due to a long session by the radiation emanated from the monitor, so it’s better to look away every few minutes.
It’s very common that minor strokes or blood coagulation may occur when we sit for hours but as soon as we move or walk, these clots disappear. So, you can imagine now what would happen if we sit for a really long time!
Finally, to avoid this stroke, we should move our butts away from the PC occasionally as mentioned earlier, we should include onion and garlic in our diet system which are considered ideal anti-clotting agents and agents against cardiovascular disease.
