Ground Report | New Delhi: Global warming increases disease; At a time when global warming has been described as a “code red” threat to humanity, experts say the world’s health problems are getting worse due to climate change and rising temperatures.
Global warming increases disease
44 annual health issues have been linked to climate change, including heat-related deaths, infectious diseases, and hunger. said Lancet Countdown project research director Marina Romanello, a biochemist., said each of the diseases was getting worse.
“It’s all a result of rising temperatures,” said Christie Abby, co-author of the report and professor of environmental health at the University of Washington. This year’s reports, one for the world and the other for the United States only, highlight these dangerous trends, including a report called ‘Code Red for Healthy Futures’, which puts people at risk (older and younger). People experienced more dangerous temperatures last year.

Researchers estimated that three billion more people over the age of 65 were exposed to extreme heat than the average between 1986 and 2005.
Most of them were in areas where climate-sensitive diseases could spread. Over the past decade, the Baltic, northeastern, and northwestern coastal areas of the Pacific Ocean have become hotter for Vibrio bacteria, where their numbers have increased.
malaria-carrying mosquitoes increased
In some poorer countries, the number of malaria-carrying mosquitoes has increased since the 1950s. “This is a more serious and sensitive issue than the last Lancet report, which shows that we are going in a completely wrong direction,” said Dr. Michelle Berry, professor of tropical medicine at Stanford University.
Extremely hot weather, fires, and droughts have caused the most problems around the world. This summer, there was a heatwave in the Pacific Ocean and Canada, and according to a previous study, it was caused by human-caused climate change.
A report released in August of this year said that the Earth’s atmosphere is warming so much that in the next 10 years or so, global temperatures could rise far beyond the level at which global leaders are working to stop it. I am busy
The United Nations has called the situation a “grave threat to humanity,” while Linda Merinz, a senior scientist at the US National Center for Environmental Research and co-author of the report, said: Is sure that the situation is going to get worse. There will be no place to escape, no place to hide.
