Affects mental health and physical health
isolation has harmful impacts towards mental and physical health.Â Â
Social isolation has been found to have double the impact on mental health in comparison to obesity. Displaying how social isolation can negatively influence an individual's mental health. Moreover, one person's mental health can affect another person as it has a ripple effect. Therefore even once an individual is out of isolation the mental health affects will not go away instantly thus it can branch off to others. Â Needs considerable revision for clarity and to more clearly develop these ideas, which are not necessarily simply connected.
The lack of social interaction has detrimental effects on physical health, increasing health risks to a scale of smoking 15 cigarettes daily.
Cigarettes are especially bad for health, leading to premature death hence proving how necessary social interaction is. Potentially taking a large toll on an individual's body when they have gone a long duration without interacting with anyone and/or having minimal social interaction.
Furthermore, researchers have found loneliness to be a factor in promoting heart disease and breast cancer (Caporuscio, 2020).
Isolation plays a large role in loneliness which in its own way is highly negative for health. Increasing the chances of medical conditions such as anxiety and depression. Both conditions that have been found to destroy careers, relationships and more(National Institute on Aging, 2019).
Finally, social isolation can lead to sleepless nights and go as far as reducing the immune function.This causes vulnerability to sicknesses as the immune function is reduced and sleep is a primary factor for maintaining a healthy immune system.Â
Secondly, isolation also impacts an individual's cognitive functionality.Â
Researchers have discovered that isolation can influence cognitive health through decreasing reasoning, judgement, ability to process, remember
information and more. Showing how isolation can result in impared cognitive functionalities, in turn negatively impacting an individuals lifestyle. For example, preventing people from working at their utmost ability, and in fact at a much lower rate than normal.Â
To add onto this, in 1972 an experiment was conducted where a french adventurer and scientist locked himself within a cave for a duration extending 6 months, after 5 months of isolation, he was reported to have attempted to befriend a mouse in desperation for company (Offord, 2020).
Clear proof of how prolonged isolation can destroy your reasoning. Making someone believe they can converse with a mouse or driving them to such lengths to take a chance of talking to an animal.Â
Lastly, a study in 2013 found that people who reported to have lower social contacts throughout the duration of the experiment had a decline in their memory and verbal fluency (Offord, 2020).
Both of these things are cognitive functions and isolation is directly connected to less social interactions, once again proving how negative isolation is for cognitive health.
Ultimately demonstrating how bad isolation is for health as a whole.Â
