IMPACTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE: HUMAN HEALTH


Item #d93dec110

Two items from World Resour. Rev., 5(2), June 1993:

"Impact of Ozone Depletion on Immune Function," A. Jeevan (Dept. Immunol., Univ. Texas, Houston TX 77030), M.L. Kripke, 141-155. Reviews studies which show that exposure of the skin to higher levels of UV-B radiation can alter immune responses and cause an increase in skin cancers and melanomas, contact allergy reactions to chemicals, delayed-type hypersensitivity responses, and the incidence or severity of certain infectious diseases.

"Algal Blooms and Public Health," P.R. Epstein (Harvard Med. Sch., Cambridge MA 02139), 190-206. Algal growth due to increased nitrogen, phosphorus and warming affect marine microflora and aquatic plants, which appear to be reservoirs for enteric pathogens. The pattern of cholera in the Western Hemisphere suggests that expansion of algal blooms have already begun to influence the epidemiology of this disease.
