Climate Change and Public Health

Global Warming and climate change can have direct impacts on our health and can cause injuries or loss of life. They can also indirectly impact health, for example, water contamination after intense rainfall, cardio-respiratory problems from smog, and increased risks from food-borne and vector-borne diseases during hot weather. Climate change can impact health in the following ways Infectious Diseases, Extreme Weather Events, Higher Temperatures, and Air Quality. Climate change puts women at risk of disease during pregnancy, malnutrition, poor mental health, lack of reproductive control and even death. Exposure to toxic environmental agents during pregnancy can also lead to increased risks of birth defects and childhood cancer. Climate change can harm the water supply, increase vector-borne disease and increase extreme weather events. Climate change is already having a noticeable impact on the environment and global health.
