Does the climate affect our health

Yes, climate affects our health in many ways. There are many websites on line that all point in the same direction. The World Health Organization have invaluable information to do with health and climate  change.

Some ways that our health can be impacted are:

Power outages in extreme weather could cripple hospitals and transportation systems when we need them most.

Crop declines could lead to undernutrition, hunger, and higher food prices.

Many people could find themselves displaced due to floods and other devastating climate conditions.

Hotter days, more rain, and higher humidity will produce more ticks, which spread infectious diseases like Lyme disease.

Severe floods, droughts and heat waves can lead to mental health issues like anxiety, depression, and suicide.

This could indeed impact many peoples lives.
