Climate change associated to an increase in congenital heart defects

Patricio Fernandez Martorell*

Climate change causes a rise in global average temperatures and increases the number of extremely hot days every year in different regions of the world.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration Agency (NASA) defines climate change as: “a broad range of global phenomena created by burning fossil fuels, which add heat-trapping gases to Earth’s atmosphere. These phenomena include the increased temperature trends described as global warming”.
