Effect of climate change on respiratory system of human health
Author(s): Suman Kumari
Abstract:
Climate change is the direct consequence of global warming. Global warming is an increase in the temperature due to high concentration of Co2 and other gases that no longer derive from nature alone but are also linked to human activities. The Global increase in Co2 is mainly caused by the fossils fuels humanity is relevantly burning to produce energy. Climate change is a key driver of the accelerating environmental change affecting populations around the world. Many of changes in climate affect respiratory system of human beings. Major findings are of Respiratory health effects related to heat, Air pollution, infectious disease allergens, flooding, water and migration.
Urbanization with its high levels of vehicle emission and westernized lifestyle are linked to rising frequency of respiratory allergic disease and Bronchial Asthma are observed. Climate changes can impact on a number of factors, water pollution, air pollution, allergic attacks caused respiratory distress. Migration involves exposure to new set of pollutants and allergens as well as changes in housing conditions, diet and medical services. All of these factors affect migrants health.
