If you live in the city your skin ages faster

Posted by Maria Beatrice Barberis on

A new study has highlighted the consequences of pollution on the skin of people living in large cities.  Can the climate crisis also cause damage to our epidermis? Air pollution also affects our body's first line of defense: our skin. Cases of atopic dermatitis, itching, psoriasis and acne are on the rise.  In urban pollution, researchers have identified as many as 224 chemicals that are harmful to skin health. These substances lead to premature skin aging. The dust present in the polluted air of large cities is to blame. They form a film on the skin along with other pollutants, thus preventing the...

This summer's devastating fires are also resulting in very serious losses of bees, both wild and bred. The numbers of losses are enormous and threaten to undermine the work of beekeepers.  Agronomists and environmentalists believe it will take at least 15 years to rebuild forested areas destroyed by the fires. Some hives that survived the fires have already resumed producing honey, and farmers who suffered damage have no plans to stop.  The reconstruction after the fires passes through the welfare of the fauna, represented until recently also by millions of bees, which have become innocent victims of the recent fires....

All the most resilient nations are islands in temperate latitudes.

Posted by Maria Beatrice Barberis on

A study on the adverse effects of climate change on societies took into account several factors: extreme weather events, droughts, floods and the impact of population movements forced to migrate in order to survive. Some nations have more favorable starting conditions than others when it comes to climate change adaptation. Islands located in temperate latitudes with strong oceanic influence have the greatest likelihood that relatively stable conditions will continue despite the effects of global warming. When a nation finds itself unable to adapt, the research points out that it faces a concatenation of disasters, in which the first to occur...
