Have you heard the new health advice about sleeping in a chilly room? Over the last few years, some scientists have begun touting the benefits of embracing the cold once in a while, and letting temperatures dip at night is one of the simpler techniques to do it.
Former NASA scientist Ray Cronise is generally credited with helping kick off the "it's good to be cold" fad.
"If I had a pill here that I said, 'Listen, I can increase your metabolism by 100 percent,' ... everybody would be standing in line saying, 'I want it,'" Cronise said in a 2010 TEDMED talk.
