Allergies may grow like weeds as Earth warms
Allergies and sniffling will be on the rise because of global warming pollution that is also threatening the agriculture industry, new research indicates.
Environmental Effects On Fertility
In a world whose population exceeds 6.5 billion, declining human fertility might not seem to be a critical problem. After all, overpopulation has been a global concern for decades. Declining fertility rates in more advanced nations largely reflect the changing role of women and their rapidly growing presence in the workplace—fertility declines may stem at least in part from the modern tendency to delay childbearing until later in life, when fertility naturally declines. But this doesn't explain the fact that, according to a December 2005 report of the CDC's National Survey on Family Growth (NSFG), the fastest-growing segment of U.S. women with impaired fecundity (the capacity to conceive and carry a child to term) is those under 25. The rising incidence of fertility-impairing health factors such as obesity also likely plays an important role. Clues from environmental exposure assessments, wildlife studies, and animal and human studies hint at additional factors: exposure to low-level environmental contaminants such as pythalates, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), dioxins, pesticides, and other chemicals may be subtly undermining our ability to reproduce.
Environmental Hormones and Estrogens
The world we live in is rapidly changing. Understanding environmental issues including global warming is now a priority for everyone. Diseases are developing at alarming rates and people are asking “Why?” and “What can we do about it?” It is said that in the year 2008 1 out of 3 people will find out they have some type of debilitating health condition needing medical attention, or heavy metals such as mercury will be detected in some part of their body. Breast Cancer, tumours, endometriosis, infertility, and low sperm counts in males have increases significantly over the past decade. Now that is not a positive subject to have to think about but unfortunately it is reality!

Physical Hazards, and their Adverse Health Effects
Although you will have heard or read a great deal about the environmental consequences of global warming, man will probably be affected through famine, or war long before the health of the population as a whole is harmed to a serious degree by the temperature change. However increasing extremes of temperature, as a result of climatic change, could result in increased mortality even in temperate climates.
