Increased Earth temperatures increase the risk of stroke in older adults


Researchers at Haifa University draw conclusions based on the country's Ministry of Health's report on stroke. Accordingly, the study authors identified the relationship between the high temperature of the living environment and the risk of stroke on hot summer days. Specifically, research shows that for every 1 degree Celsius increase in temperature, the risk of stroke increases by 10% over a 6-day period.

More specifically, the researchers found a higher association between temperature and stroke in the form of a vascular occlusion than the type of stroke that causes cerebral hemorrhage. Examining the medical records of stroke patients, the researchers determined that the incubation period was 6 days and both occurred in men and women over the age of 50.

Stroke is also known as a stroke. This is a condition in which the brain is seriously injured due to the interrupted or greatly reduced brain blood supply that causes the brain to lack oxygen. People who have a stroke need emergency care immediately, the longer the time it lasts, the more the number of brain cells die, which will greatly affect the body's ability to move, think and even die. Most stroke survivors are in poor health or have conditions such as paralysis or partial body movement, loss of speech, emotional disorders, impaired vision. Therefore, in this study, Israeli researchers recommend that people at risk of stroke should be cautious and stay in an air-conditioned environment on hot days.

According to the World Stroke Organization, 15 million people worldwide have a stroke every year and about 5.8 million die from this cause.
