It all depends on the person. There are a lot of people out there that sleep better with a fan. Studies have shown that fans help people sleep in several ways. First, they keep you cool during the night so you don't get night sweats and wake up miserable. Second, the stimulation from air blowing across the face causes your mind to turn OFF (to a degree) outside stimulation which helps you stay asleep. Third, fans can mask a lot of the small noises that cause you to wake up during the night. There are websites that actually sell fans designed to help people sleep, see the link to sleepfans.com below in the related links section. All that to say, give it a shot, you may very well sleep better.
There are a lot of myths and old beliefs from before science fully understood the mechanism of infection by rhinoviruses (the viruses causing the common cold). The idea of being out in the cold weather or in air drafts causing a "weakening" the immune system allowing for infections isn't true.
Dowling HF, Jackson GG, Spiesman IG, Inouye T (1958). "Transmission of the common cold to volunteers under controlled conditions. III. The effect of chilling of the subjects upon susceptibility". [American Journal of Hygiene 68 (1): 59-65.];
Douglas, R.G.Jr, K.M. Lindgren, and R.B. Couch (1968). "Exposure to cold environment and rhinovirus common cold. Failure to demonstrate effect". [New England Journal of Medicine 279.]
Your immune system doesn't need to work hard to keep you warm because immune response isn't responsible for temperature regulation, so that does not put any strain on the immune system or interfere with its ability to fight infections.
The best way to avoid colds is to wash your hands regularly, and steer clear of sick people as best you can.
It should not be bad to sleep with a fan on even if you have a stuffy nose. The stuffy nose is caused by an underlying problem and not the fan.
No, but you can get sick if the temperature is too low in the room: be careful!
Lots of people use fans when they are sleeping; personally I find them to be too noisy.
Yes, it's very dangerous
Different people have different ways they like to sleep. You may like a fan to sleep with. Other people may have to use a TV to help them sleep at night. It is about your comfort and what helps you to sleep comfortable.
not at all. But do not sleep with your head straight under ceiling fan.
People do not die from lack of sleep- but they DO die from lack of food.
Well of course, anyone can die in their sleep doesn't matter if they are young or old.
Uhh... all of them die when put to sleep. Being put to sleep is killing them "humanely".
