More than two billion people around the world regularly consume insects. UW–Madison researchers have documented, for the first time, the health effects of eating them. GHI’s postdoctoral research associate Valerie Stull is the study’s lead author.
GHI Director Jonathan Patz explains the connection between climate change and human health and the research he’s been doing.
GHI Director Jonathan Patz was a co-author on a recently published study on the impact of increasing greenhouse gas emissions on climate hazards. This research reveals that society faces a much larger threat from climate change than previous studies have suggested.
GHI Director Jonathan Patz said the study is consistent with recent work by other scientists, including his own recent research on heat waves and hospital admissions in Milwaukee, Wisconsin over a 17-year period.
Doctors at UW Health say everyone 6 months old or older should get a flu shot as soon as possible, especially before the end of October.
