If you are concerned about the effect of climatic changes on you, then you will find How the Weather Affects Your Health is indispensable for explaining the link between the two strongest influences on our lives. The effects that weather sensitivity, climate change, air, heat, cold, solar radiation and violent weather have on us are all presented, with background information on weather-related disorders and preventative and remedial advice. It compiles the vast information from many fields of science into one easy-to-read work. It provides you with the knowledge to link certain symptoms with certain weather conditions. If you suffer from headache or migraine, you may find that a dry wind, approaching weather front or charged atmosphere is the trigger for your ordeal.
