Can climate, weather, cosmos, and environmental degradation predispose to cardiovascular and other diseases?

The internal environment of our body systems interacts with environment in the biosphere and cosmos; the earth rotates around its axis, and around the sun in the cosmos, all living species, including humans, animals and plants, are exposed to storms induced by solar activity, geomagnetic activity, cosmic ray activity and gravitational activity. Magnetic storms may be responsible for changes in climate weather in the biosphere and cosmos as well as on earth which may influence physiology and metabolisms as well as physio-pathogenesis of diseases. Cosmology is the science dealing with knowledge about origin and development of universe, including biology related to the cosmos. Therefore, it is pertinent to call cosmo-biology, when dealing with effects of the cosmos on biological functions. Mental and spiritual health, and also possibly physical and social health, may be under the influence of solar activity, geomagnetic activity and cosmic ray activity that have major effects on space weather and climate in the cosmos. Environmental degradation may disturb magnetic activity in the cosmos, leading to changes in climate with increase in environmental temperatures causing longer summer heat waves that increase mortality, particularly among vulnerable populations such as elderly and poor people, residents of urban heat islands, and people with mental illness. Higher temperatures also increase ozone levels, compromising lung function and exacerbating asthma which may worsen due to earlier and longer pollen seasons, elevating exposure to allergens and increasing allergic sensitization and asthma episodes. Higher temperatures may result in larger and longer forest fires, reducing downwind air quality and increasing hospitalizations for respiratory and cardiovascular conditions like heart attack and sudden death. Increases in temperatures above 40°C may also predispose to heart attack. © 2018, Nova Science Publishers, Inc.. All rights reserved.
