Doctors say wearing too tight tie could put you at increased risk of stroke. Men working in offices mostly use neckties but a new research suggests that wearing ties may actually interrupt work performance and reduce creativity.
The man who dressed normally they can work as a smarter and more functioning as compared to a man who wears ties daily because wearing a tie squeezes the neck veins and limits the blood flow, potentially slowing down the brain’s processing and limiting your thinking skills.
Scientists at University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein in Germany scanned the brains of 30 young men, 15 of whom were instructed to wear open-collared shirts, and the other 15 who were asked to wear ties. The researchers found that the ties squeezed the veins where the blood passes through to reach the brain, cutting off circulation by 7.5 percent.
The percentage is sizable enough to make a fatal difference for those who have high blood pressure. In extreme cases, insufficient blood flow to the brain can kill organ tissue or cause a stroke.
A smooth and steady flow of blood to the brain is crucial for all our neurons and cells to continue ticking along, transmitting messages and making it possible to respond instantly to an issue, conundrum or threat. Relaxation and exercise are vital for improved blood flow to the brain.
Other researchers had found evidence that wearing a tie can also add unneeded pressure to your eyes, which could lead to an early onset of glaucoma. Glaucoma is diagnosed when increases in pressure are likely to cause damage to the eye, and in its most common form, affects approximately 1% of 50-year-olds in the UK. It is the most common cause of irreversible blindness in the world.
