Climate Change having negative impact on Human and Animal Health
Researchers at the Odum School of Ecology in Georgia, USA, have released results of a ten year research study which indicate that Climate change is having a negative impact on the health of animals and of human beings. They discovered that in the tropics increased warming had increased the growth rate and the life span of some deadly bacteria which cause diseases. Similarly, microbes that affect agriculture and wildlife have increased in number and in resistance. This could affect food security and the livelihoods of many people. To prevent the outbreaks of diseases, governments have been advised to increase surveillance measures, to control the emerging vectors, to modernize the sanitary conditions and to immunize the people.
