Although seasonal changes affect people’s mental behaviors; It can also increase the risk of various diseases.
The reasons such as the cold weather, the opening of schools and the prolongation of the time spent indoors such as public transport may increase the transmission and incidence of microbial infections, especially viral diseases such as colds and flu.
The human body needs a period of 2-4 weeks to adapt to temperature changes and new conditions. This is only possible with smooth seasonal transitions. However, today, this situation cannot be realized due to global warming. The short-term temperature changes that occur with the sudden warming and cooling of the weather also make it difficult for the body to adapt. This situation causes the body to get stressed and weaken the defense system. Both easy transmission and sensitization of the body make it easier to catch flu epidemics, especially in the autumn-winter period. This condition is more common in patients with chronic diseases.
