Climate Change is in Canada's Health Hazard, say Doctors



One of the world's leading medical celebrity magazines says that reducing greenhouse gas emissions Canada is not dying of the planets, it is the killing of Canadians.

A report on the health impact of climate change, released on The Lancet, on Wednesday, concludes that the fight against climate change is the only thing to do to make human health improvements this century.

Concerns about air pollution on greenhouse gas emissions are one-year-old 7,142 deaths from 7 million people in Canada and 2,1 million people worldwide, the report said.

Hot waves, forest fires, floods and major storms are causing death and long-term illnesses, but how much data is available.

The report is the first recommendation to control the number of Canadian illnesses and deaths in most provinces.

The Wildfire season of the 2018 is devastating in California, with a total of 7,579 fire fires.

Last summer, public health officials in Quebec killed 90 people in the heat wave. Ontario was hot in the south and east, but Ontario did not monitor the deaths caused by warming, so nobody knew how many people were in the provinces.

Dr. Courtney Howard, an emergency doctor at Yellowknife, who wrote the Canadian section of the report, said that the world is at a pace that we do not adapt to temperature, causing more deaths and illnesses.

The average temperature of the world's temperature is already warmer than the temperature of 1 C prior to the industrial era and if we continue to emit greenhouse gases at today's levels, the increase will be between 2.6 and 4.8 C at the end of the century, he said.

"We are not sure that we can adapt to this, in order to maintain the same civilization stability and health services we use," Howard said.

"We are talking about not maintaining the levels of disease, we are talking about the ability to provide health care."

Airborne contaminated fine particles cause heart disease, strokes, lung cancer, respiratory system infections and chronic lung diseases. Waves of heat are more frequent when the stroke warms up and causes more intense pollen, allergies and asthma, like wildfires.

"We are not sure in this way that has been adapted to us in the same way that we use civilization stability and health systems." Dr. Courtney Howard, Emergency Doctor of Yellowknife.

The warmer temperatures also contribute to the improvement of insects, that is, more defective diseases. Lyme disease, caused by ticks, increased by 50% only in 2017.

Howard's new term of mental health is said to be an "eco-anxiety" because they describe the mental stress caused by climate change or a possible threat.

Public health officials would save the risks, such as forest fires, increased intensity and frequency of fire, as communities will increase the air, as Howard said.

Most healthcare authorities recommend that you stop smoking at home, but it is not a permanent solution during these weeks.

Floods are also rising.

In San Francisco this month, the air that burns through wild fires has become one of the most dangerous in the world. The doctors told people they would sleep and wore their masks outdoors.

As Howard said, smoke prevention is working to improve people's awareness so they can be outdoors and alert themselves to spreading exercise and sunlight safely.

Last spring, some Canadians warned about how climate change will happen, British Columbia's hard-burning seasonal records in 2017 and 2018, droughts in Canadian power stations, heat waves and floods Near-coastal communities. Some people think this is normal, but it's not.

"It will be worse in 10 years," he said.

Howard said that without our efforts to step by step, world changes will be massive, including war and migration.

"I am an emergency doctor and I am working on this, because this is an emergency," he said.

The Canadian Medical Association and the Canadian Public Health Association agree with Lancet's findings and recommendations.

"Health professionals have seen the destructive effects of our changing climate health as quickly as possible," said Dr. Gigi Osler, President of the Canadian Medical Association, in a statement.

"We are dealing with waves to face new infectious diseases from the wilderness, we are dealing with climate change health effects," he said.

"This is the public need of our time health."
