Some people who travel quite often have to go through time and climate zones and feel no ill effects. Others, to the contrary, even when they are lying on the sofa at home, can feel the slightest changes in the atmospheric temperature and pressure which results in feeling unwell and tired. Such sensibility to changes of weather conditions is called ‘weather sensitivity’ or ‘meteosensitivity’.
Weather-sensitive people, or, as they are often called, human ‘barometers’, are mostly those who suffer from joint diseases or cardiovascular disorders, those who often work long hours, those who have not enough rest and overwork themselves. Such groups of people include patients with the heart, brain or lower extremities atherosclerosis, patients with respiratory or musculoskeletal diseases, highly allergic individuals and those who have neurasthenia. So there is no doubt that weather does affect human health. There is even a certain field of science called biometeorology which studies the interactions between living organisms and the processes happening in the atmosphere.
