– Change in climate would inevitably mean a shift in types of food you grow.
– The rise in temperature has led to an increase in food borne pathogens.
Global warming can not only be a bad news for the planet but also for your health. It affect your health and also increase risk of death. Research claimed that global warming may cause human health problems due to microbes, bacteria and toxic algae bloom in coming decades. Also, studies have shown that high levels of pollution are linked to an higher risk of cardiac problems.
Here are ways global warming can affect your health
Longer allergy seasons
The increase in carbon dioxide in the air allows a whole lot of allergens to grow which cause sneezing, watery eyes and serious allergy attacks.
Less nutritious veggies
Change in climate would inevitably mean a shift in types of food you grow. Increase in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere can lower the nutritional value of the crops. Veggies won’t be that nutritious for you.
More diseases spread by mosquitoes
Warmer temperature would also mean an earlier and longer breeding seasons for the mosquitoes which lead to an increase in parasite-borne illness.
Higher risk of food and water borne diseases
The rise in temperature has led to an increase in food borne pathogens. The food comes in contact with pathogens, which contaminate food supply.
According to the World Health Organization, climate cyhange is expected to cause approximately 250000 additional deaths per year from malnutrition, malaria, diarrhoea and heat stress.
Bad for the heart
Higher temperature and ozone may act together to worsen heart health. Global warming will likely bring an increase in heat waves. Lower heart-rate variability is associated with an increased risk of death following a heart attack.
Study found that 38 percent of the world made up of arid at risk for desertification. The soil becomes unproductive when it’s degraded. This may limit the land that can be used for agriculture to feed the world’s growing population.
