This blog is #12 in a series of blogs in the form of questions or statements about a health issue and answers. These are in the typical format used when doctors take tests.

QUESTION #12

Indirect health effects of climate change include all of the following except:

  1. Temperature-related illnesses and deaths
  2. Air pollution
  3. Inhalation exposure to atmospheric levels of carbon dioxide
  4. Infectious diseases

That’s correct! #3.

The indirect health effects of climate change have been reported via a multitude of pathways that include, but are not limited to, temperature-related illnesses and deaths, air pollution, and infectious diseases. Inhalation of atmospheric carbon dioxide is considered to be a direct effect of climate change. Current atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide are nearly 400 parts per million or 0.04%. Although no known toxicological effects have been identified at these levels, significantly higher concentrations may cause symptoms.

My Vive: Infectious diseases! The health effects of climate change.  Can everyone say together, “coronavirus pandemic”? Look at the date of the first scientific study. 2004! And, this research was not published in some obscure journal that no one knows about. It was published in JAMA, the Journal of the American Medical Association. For sure, the most read medical journal in the United States and one of the top couples worldwide. 2004! When someone tries to say that “no one could see this infectious disease pandemic coming,” you now know that the fact-based scientific community saw this coming decades ago. And, it will keep happening over and over again unless we do something about climate change. But now you know this information also. It is not just the doctors and scientists any longer.
