  • More Extreme Heat Waves

    Global warming will bring more extreme heat waves. As the United States warms another 4 to 11°F on average over the next century, we will have more extremely hot summer days. Every part of the country will be affected. Urban areas will feel the heat more acutely because asphalt, concrete, and other structures absorb and reradiate heat, causing temperature to be as much as 10°F higher than nearby rural areas.

  • Environmental Pollutants and the Immune System

    In evolution, surprisingly little is left to chance.

  • Projected US Casualties and Destruction of US Medical Services From Attacks by Russian Nuclear Forces

    The number of direct, short term casualties and collateral damage to US medical services were calculated for two thermonuclear attack scenarios. The first scenario would cause 52 million prompt fatalities, 9 million injuries, and massive destruction of US health facilities. The second scenario produces more than 100 million casualties. Even with an effective US NMD system—defined as capable of successfully interception more than 100 warheads—nearly 70 million fatalities would occur. Read more »

  • Status Syndrome: A Challenge to Medicine

    The poor have poor health. At first blush that is neither new nor surprising. Perhaps it should be more surprising than it is. In rich countries, such as the United States, the nature of poverty has changed—people do not die from lack of clean water and sanitary facilities or from famine—and yet, persistently, those at the bottom of the socioeconomic scale have worse health than those above them in the hierarchy.
