A study by Boston University School of Medicine and the University of British Columbia found that extreme heat affects young people between the ages of 18 and 64 more than older adults over 75. Results the research was published in the British Medical Journal.
Scientists have found that in days of extreme heat, it is people under 64 who are more likely to seek medical help with complaints of heatstroke and mental disorders.
At the same time, as specified, extreme heat is a growing threat to the inhabitants of the planet, because hot days will become more frequent.
Dr.Kate Weinberger believes that the fact that young people seek help more often may be due to the fact that young people are more likely to work in an open cart spirit or relaxing in nature in the heat. According to the scientist, young people may not realize that they are at risk, so it is important to educate everyone about the dangerous effects of heat.
By the way, other studies have shown that extreme heat is a threat to people in cold countries such as Canada, because people are not used to these temperatures.
