Increased Respiratory Disease Risk

Warmer temperatures and longer seasons can lead to the production of more plant-based allergens that increase allergic sensitizations and asthma episodes.

Warmer temperatures and longer seasons can lead to the production of more plant-based allergens that increase allergic sensitizations and asthma episodes.[1][2][3][4]

Extreme rainfall and rising temperatures can also foster indoor air quality problems, including the growth of indoor fungi and molds, with increases in respiratory and asthma-related conditions.[5][6]
