Nine times more deaths due to cold than summer every year in the world
According to the report of Climate Realizer, about 4.6 million deaths occur every year due to cold in the world, while about 4.89 lakh people die due to heat. Researchers say that our body cannot tolerate the lowering of temperature.
Every year in the world, there are more deaths due to cold than in summer. This difference is more than nine times. This has been revealed in recent research. Researchers say several factors are responsible for the deaths from both seasons. One of these is also global warming. According to the report of Climate Realizer, about 4.6 million deaths occur every year due to cold in the world, while about 4.89 lakh people die due to heat. Researchers say that our body cannot tolerate the lowering of temperature. If the temperature drops too much, many parts of the body stop working. Sometimes a person dies due to the failure of many organs. Many people get hypothermia due to colds. People's BP also increases in winter. This increases the risk of a heart attack.
According to the report, 50 percent of the maximum deaths due to cold occur in South and East Asia, while the maximum number of deaths due to high heat occurs in Europe. From 2006 to 2010, 6,660 people died of hypothermia in the United States. That is, the average number of winter deaths in America is 1,320. According to the report of the Lancet Journal, in India too, every year more deaths occur due to cold than in summer.
The normal body temperature is 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit. This temperature also depends on age or activities throughout the day. Older people are more prone to temperature fluctuations than younger people because metabolism slows down significantly with age. Due to slow metabolism, the body temperature can drop more. This is the reason why the risk of hypothermia is higher in older people.
