Global warming will see rainfall and heatwaves but a new two-year study in mice suggests this can ultimately help prevent heart disease from developing warn University of Dresden researchers.
The study emphasizes the need to anticipate potential future changes in animal physiology especially as a result of climate change. This would help public health authorities and policymakers focus on preventative measures to reduce heart disease. The research is titled Advance study of the impact of climate on the regulation of platelet function reveals the importance of integrating circulation dynamics with thermodynamics. The characteristics of the climate as well as temperature and humidity have a general impact on the bat heart which is known to be most sensitive to heat.
By the second half of the 20th century the decrease in rainfall and consequent increase in temperatures led to a dramatic increase in the incidence of acute myocardial infarction (AMA) the most serious type of heart attack with a serious blow to the heart which can lead to organ failure and death. The agency of the Ministry of Medical Care later agreed that this statistic should be regarded as an indicator of future cardiovascular health and might be able to predict your risk of this type of attack.
However the researchers believe that the changes seen in the animals in the study which were not elicited by exposure to sunlight and could presumably be explained by factors other than seasonal factors thus indicate that conditions are not expected to change significantly if the disease primarily results from untreated or underdiagnosed conditions. This is an example of why climate change has not yet been fully grasped. We are still in the middle of an acute weakness and this problem has the potential to make the whole process of fighting a disease needlessly become more difficult said associate professor Franz-Werner Gripp and Nancy Franz M. D. who developed the animal models used in the research.
The researchers studied the responses of 140 European male and female rats in two separate groups: One was exposed to solar light the other to artificial light. At a concentration equivalent to that of human beings the animals at the solar-lit type did not appear to have sustainable blood flow because their blood pump output did not reach a maximum level.
