Who doesn’t love sleeping? Sleeping after a tired day not only brings you peace but also brings relaxation. And do you know some people are so addicted to sleeping that whenever they find places or time they take a nap? Even I have friends who cancel all the plans just for sleeping.
Yes! a good sleep is necessary for our health but have you ever heard of people who slept directly for 6 days? Just imagine you are out for your work or shopping and in the middle of the road you sleep? And then you wake up directly after 6 days. How would be the feeling?
Sounds weird and horrifying, Right?
But this is the truth! Something same happens in the village of Kazakhstan.
The reason behind the mysterious sleeping villages of Kazakhstan.
Actually, there is a small village in Kazakhstan, people living here have been facing a different problem for the past few years. The problem is that these people get into the grip of sleep anytime, on the go. There is no problem in sleeping. But the main problem is that if a person sleeps here then he/she wakes up directly after 6 days.. It is said that many times these people are asleep for weeks. As if they have gone in the lap of death, but then one day suddenly they get up again.
Scientists are also Shocked!
In such a situation, the scientists are also shocked to see this problem of the people of the village. The scientists followed wide-ranging research on the problem of sleep, which showed that in the population of approximately 810 people in this village, about 200 people suffer from this kind of problem. At the same time, it has also been found that some people have also died in this sleep.
“The sick person appears to be conscious and can even walk. But all the same, he then falls into a deep sleep and snores, and when they wake him up … the person remembers absolutely nothing,” the newspaper Komsomolskaya Pravda reported after a 2014 investigation.
After scientific tests, it came out that the level of carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons in the region is more than normal, due to which the people here are not getting enough oxygen and people are becoming victims of this mysterious sleep. But the question arises that if this is the reason behind this mysterious sleep, then its effect should fall on all the people of the village, why only some people are suffering from it?
Finally, the reason is revealed:
Now the mystery has at last been solved and the cause does indeed lie in the uranium mines, said Kazakhstan’s deputy PM, Berdibek Saparbaev. After analysing the results of medical examinations of all the residents, researchers concluded that it was caused by heightened levels of carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons in the air.
“The uranium mines were closed at some point, and at times a concentration of carbon monoxide occurs there,” Saparbaev said. “The oxygen in the air is reduced accordingly, which is the real reason for the sleeping sickness in these villages.”
