Climate change and liver health

Climate change is currently responsible for global weather extremes, and these weather extremes could contribute to changes in the pattern of health problems. An interesting paper has been just published in Global Environmental Health and Sustainability discussing the role of climate change on remapping of hepatic diseases and possible relevance to global health. Climate change was found to have a major influence on the distribution and severity of hepatic diseases, such as outbreaks of vector-borne, water or food-borne, parasitic diseases, re-emerging of disappeared diseases, or emerging of new forms of infectious agents. This paper could be of high importance to the health decision-makers as an early alarm and prediction of hepatic health problems with the projected climate change in the future.
