Study reports increased temperatures due to climate change will negatively affect both the general health and mental health of humanity. Children's health will be most affected by climate change, researchers report.
Increasing ambient temperatures has a negative impact on sleep duration, researchers report.
A new study reveals the impact climate played in the evolution of the human brain and body. Studying 300 fossils from the genus Homo found across the globe, researchers found those who lived in colder climates had larger body frames. Larger bodies provided a buffer from colder temperatures. Brain size tended to be larger in those who lived in environments with less vegetation and survived by hunting large animals, a task that involved higher cognitive function.
