Extreme temperatures, both hot and cold, can affect human health. Heatwaves can lead to heat-related illnesses, while cold temperatures may increase the risk of hypothermia and respiratory issues.
Atmospheric conditions influence air quality, and poor air quality can exacerbate respiratory problems, trigger allergies, and contribute to the development of cardiovascular diseases.
High humidity can make hot temperatures feel more oppressive, impacting the body's ability to cool itself through sweating. Low humidity can lead to dry skin and respiratory discomfort.
Exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun can cause skin damage, sunburn, and increase the risk of skin cancer. Protection measures such as sunscreen and appropriate clothing are essential.
Certain weather conditions, such as warm and humid environments, can contribute to the proliferation of infectious diseases, including those transmitted by insects like mosquitoes.
Changes in sunlight and shorter days during the winter months can contribute to Seasonal Affective Disorder, a form of depression linked to seasonal patterns.
Extreme weather events, natural disasters, or prolonged periods of inclement weather can contribute to stress, anxiety, and other mental health issues in affected populations.
Severe weather conditions, such as storms, hurricanes, or icy conditions, can lead to weather-related injuries, including falls, accidents, and trauma.
