You might not want to listen to this baby shark baby song, but that doesn’t mean it’s completely harmless.
A study published in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases found that people who listened to this and other baby shark songs had significantly lower levels of the inflammatory cytokines interleukin-1β and tumor necrosis factor-alpha in their blood.
These cytokines are associated with a host of health issues, including arthritis, cardiovascular disease, and cancers.
In the study, researchers looked at more than 2,000 participants in the United Kingdom and the United States and compared those who listened for two weeks to those who didn’t.
They found that those who had the baby shark music listened to it less, but they also had lower levels in their plasma and in their lymph nodes.
These levels were similar to those in people who were already sick with COVID-19, which means that the effects are likely to be milder than the disease itself.
The study also found that listening to this lullaby led to lower levels than listening to music from other sources.
It also reduced the severity of symptoms.
The study authors note that while it may not seem like a big deal, “it may be important for people to practice listening to baby shark lullabies for at least two weeks prior to going to bed.”
