         WE LOVE SCIENCE HERE BECAUSE IT IS A MANY SPLENDOURED THING

     THIS  IS A WAR ZONE WHERE SCIENCE FIGHTS WITH NONSENSE AND WINS                                               

“The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.”             

                    "Being a scientist is a state of mind, not a profession!"

"Knowledge is a Superpower but the irony is you cannot get enough of it with ever increasing data base unless you try to keep up with it constantly and in the right way!" The best education comes from learning from people who know what they are exactly talking about.

Science is this glorious adventure into the unknown, the opportunity to discover things that nobody knew before. And that’s just an experience that’s not to be missed. But it’s also a motivated effort to try to help humankind. And maybe that’s just by increasing human knowledge—because that’s a way to make us a nobler species.

If you are scientifically literate the world looks very different to you.

We do science and science communication not because they are easy but because they are difficult!

Extreme, high temperatures may double or triple heart-related deaths

When temperatures reach extremes of an average daily temperature of 109 degrees Fahrenheit (43 C), the number of deaths from cardiovascular disease may double or triple. Researchers note that these findings raise concerns that traditionally hot regions may be especially vulnerable to heat-related cardiovascular deaths, according to new research published today in Circulation, the flagship journal of the American Heart Association.

Compared to the number of deaths on days with the lowest mortality temperature (average daily temperature of 94.5 degrees Fahrenheit (35 C), when the fewest people died), when the 24-hour average temperature was extreme (109 degrees Fahrenheit (43 C) or higher), the investigators found:

  • Overall, a 3-times greater risk of dying from any cardiovascular cause;
  • Men were more affected by the extreme temperatures, experiencing a 3.5 times higher  rate;
  • The death rate among women was nearly 2.5 higher;
  • Working-age people (ages 15-64 years) had a death rate 3.8 times higher; and
  • The death rate was just over 2-times higher for people 65 and older.

To examine the effects of temperature on its own, the investigators adjusted for other  such as air pollution and humidity. Higher temperatures affected both genders and all ages differently.

When core body temperature increases, the human body tries to cool itself by shifting blood from the organs to underneath the skin. This shift causes the heart to pump more blood, putting it under significantly more stress. A collaborative group of cardiologists, environmental health specialists and epidemiologists hypothesized that increasing temperatures in hotter regions of the world could lead to increased CVD death due to extreme heat's effects on the body.

The study was limited by only having information on any cardiovascular cause of death, so it is not known whether any specific type of heart problem is more susceptible to the influence of extreme heat. Although the researchers found a strong association between extremely high temperatures and increased cardiovascular deaths, further research is needed to establish a cause and effect relationship.

More information: Barrak Alahmad et al, Cardiovascular Mortality and Exposure to Heat in an Inherently Hot Region: Implications for Climate Change, Circulation (2020). DOI: 10.1161/CIRCULATIONAHA.119.044860
