Climate change and health impacts

Live Science posted a map this week which described impacts on human and animal health which are occurring because of changes in climate over time.  Impacts vary depending on what part of the country you are in because temperatures and precipitation will change in different ways and work on different disease vectors like deer ticks which are not present in all parts of the country.  You can read this story at http://www.livescience.com/58270-climate-change-health-effects-united-states.html.

Here are a couple of other climate and health stories I have seen in the news lately:
