Change is an ongoing and necessary process. Unfortunately, our planet is now undergoing a change that is not positive.
Here on our blue marble of a planet called Earth, we are lucky that our planet’s tilt and our oversize moon keep our seasons pretty consistent. Lately, our climate has been changing, and not necessarily for the better. Between flooding in the southern US and places like Pakistan, severe drought in the US West, and rising sea temperatures, our climate is changing and we are feeling the negative effects.
As your partner in health and wellness, Health Products For You can explain how these climate changes can impact the seasonal weather we have grown accustomed to and how it affects you!
In North America, we’re used to having four distinct seasons: spring, summer, autumn, and winter. This has a lot to do with our distance from the sun and the approximately 23° tilt of Earth. Our large moon regulates tides and if all goes well everything runs smoothly.

Humans are affected in many ways, including higher electricity bills for air conditioning, spreading diseases like Lyme disease, and increasing insurance premiums for flood-prone areas. The EPA points to several indicators of climate change:
Whether we want to believe it or not, the climate on our little blue planet is changing. Things are warming, melting, and making storms more costly and frequent. This also leads to a direct impact on our health and well-being, not to mention our pockets.
