The doctors explained why wearing a tie is bad for health

30 men were recruited, 15 wearing a neck tie and 15 with an open collar shirt. It could be the fact that a tightened tie causes discomfort around the windpipe which may affect blood flow, or affects the jugular vein causing back pressure to the brain, thereby sending a signal that decreases blood flow to the brain. Interestingly, the researchers did not notice any statistically significant changes when it came to blood flow in the jugular vein.

German scientists, University hospital Schleswig-Holstein said, what is so wrong with ordinary ties. Half of the men were asked to wear open collared comfortable shirts while the other half was asked to wear Windsor-knotted ties which were tightened to cause slight discomfort.

The next time one of your friends or acquaintances pulls a Barney Stinson from How I Met Your Mother and tells you to "suit up", you might want to forgo the necktie, as a new study suggests that wearing a tie reduces blood circulation to the brain, potentially preventing the brain from processing information as smoothly as it should.

The study involved 30 volunteers. Once the ties were loosened in these individuals, the third MRI showed that a 5.7 percent deficit in blood supply remained.

The research team saw an immediate drop in cerebral blood flow. Study leader Robin Lüddecke and colleagues write that it is too early to draw definitive conclusions from this study.

The findings are something of an endorsement for the increasingly popular tech-bro uniform championed by Mark Zuckerberg and the late Steve Jobs, doing away with ties in favor of stretchy attire.Prior to the study, published in the journal Stringer, other researchers had found evidence that a necktie increases pressure in a wearer's eyes.
