Climate change, one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century, has serious adverse effects on human health. Extreme climate events increase mortality and morbidity, the prevalence of water- and vector-borne diseases, malnutrition, and respiratory diseases. Climate change has serious effects on mental health. Mental health is impacted directly and indirectly resulting in mental illnesses and suicidal mortality. Global heating, due to the increasing greenhouse effect, has disturbed the energetic balance of the Earth and destroyed its fragile climate. It is creating an atmospheric imbalance with toxins that are affecting the human nervous system and, thereby, impacting health.
