According to the alarming report of the scientists climate change is pushing many people around the world to be vulnerable in the exposure of heat and also putting at the greater danger of heart including heat stress, kidney disease and other heat-related killers.
The effects of the Global warming look most crucial for ripeness and urban populations and people with persistent health conditions. The researchers claimed in an analysis in The Lancet medical journal, Europe and the eastern Mediterranean are more crucial than Africa and Southeast Asia due to many people older people existing in condensed populated cities.
A professor of York University at Britain , Hilary Graham who co-led the work, said, “Trends in the impacts of climate change, exposures and vulnerabilities show unacceptably high risk for health, now and in the future.
The Lancet Countdown on Climate change and health entangled in work from 27 academic institutions in disciplines from engineering to health to ecology, plus proficiency from the intergovernmental agencies and the United Nations across the world.
According to the World Health Organization, climate change influences many factors impacting health, including clean air and water, shelter and food. It evaluates that between 2030 and 2050 , climate change could be cause of an additional 250,000 deaths a year due to starvation , malaria, heat stress and diarrhoea.
The report discovered that in 2017, some 157 million helpless people had to be exposed to heatwaves. Some 153 billion hours of labour died due to extreme heat exposure.
Climate Health Specialist Howard Frumkin said, “ Climate change is directly impacting our health, with extreme heat, for example, driving wildfires, crop failures, infectious diseases and costing lives all around the world”.
