BMI is a measure of whether a person’s weight is healthy. It is calculated by dividing an adult’s weight in kilograms by their height in meters squared. The resulting figure corresponds to the BMI scale, with 18.5 to 24.9 considered to be an ideal range. The study published in The Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology linked both a low and a high BMI to a higher risk of death.

Exposure to ticks and mosquitoes is the … [Read more...] about Is Climate Change Causing A Rise In Mosquito And Tick-Borne Diseases?
