Air-conditioner is trouble-maker

Popularity 1Viewed 2326 times 2019-7-7 08:07 |System category:News

Mr. Li is a worker in our school whose main task is to safeguard the office-building. It took me a long time to persuade him not to use air-conditioner too much specially when he is sleeping! I believe that the modern electric device maybe the bottom reason why he got the illness of facial distortion! In hot Summer the air conditioner directly blows ‘cool’ gas to the bed even in night! The coldness from the machine had got into the inside of his body when he was in wonder dream that made the nerve system work in disorder! The mouth-and-eye swifted to one side that disease cost him much money for treatment. He complained: "I felt I was dying when I got recovery from the illness since all parts of the body were quite painful with no strength!"

Dear reader friends:About this topic, I had posted one thread titled ‘How to improve indoor air quality’ in which I meantioned the side-effect of air-conditioner. In hot weather I dare not run the cooling machine. Just let everything go in natural way. Sweating is one of functions of the body which is workable for you to cool down!

Mr Li as a night watcher, should walk his beat at night, but why does he sleep in an AC room all the time? The employer is way too hospitable!

School is not military unit. His duty is not as serious as soldiers who must stand at  the gate with gun in the hand!
The man had led normal life before the air-conditioner was fixed in his bedroom that is one part of the decoration project to the office-building. In summer he enjoyed cool air while sleeping that was comfortable. Months later this kind of comfort proved as a ‘disaster’!  
Imagine that: How can your nerve system adjust the body to deal with a hard situation in sleeping hours when the air-conditioner blowing cold gas to the back while the chest and stomach  keep sweating due to high temperature?

You are funny, according to you, a military camp has more good reasons than a school not to hire a security, will a thief go there to steal if he doesn't want to be killed immediately?

Thanks for your comment which has driven me think a lot!
In China we call this kind of similar diseases as ‘中风’which means ‘Being hit by wind’! In other words, ‘Tom has been beaten down by chilly wind.’In serious case the patient can not move arm and leg even lost the speaking ability!
According to traditional Chinese medicinal theory, humans should live in normal condition. Or we might become ill at anytime if we break the routine living habit!
For an example, that lad Smith in our village jumped into the deep pond for cooling down his sweating body from heavy labor farming work. This jumping became a nightare for him and family: He got a strange illness that cost him a sum of money for treatment. At last he  became half a fool up to now with little words.
In the medicinal circle doctors often talk about air-condition-disease which means that many people become ill from usage of the modern cooling machine!
In the freezing factory your bone-joint may easily get into trouble due to instant temperature changing when you enter or come out of the special workshop!
In hot summer the surface of the road is so hot which temperature reaches 80 centigrade degrees. How do you feel when you step onto the black ground from the car with cooling system? Can you stand up the challenge of the steep temperature change?

    I do enjoy the warm discussion atmosphere in the ‘old’ version of the Forum. Now the new blog-platform is lack of such advantage although our editors have paid much energy on it!  What a pity for all of us?

    For correction: “The heaven and the Globe is an unified body” (not ‘a’).
