As a whole, the large body of research on the effects of Medicaid expansion under the ACA suggests that expansion has had largely positive impacts on coverage; access to care, utilization, and affordability; and economic outcomes, including impacts on state budgets, uncompensated care costs for hospitals and clinics, and employment and the labor market. With ACA repeal and replacement remaining a priority for the Trump Administration and Congress, these findings suggest that gains in coverage and access as well as economic benefits to states and providers are at stake if the Medicaid expansion is repealed.
In most parts of the world, deaths from cold in winter exceed deaths from heat in summer. Winter temperatures especially impact the poor, who cannot afford to sufficiently heat their homes. A rise of even a few degrees of temperature annually decreases fuel expenditures, saves lives and reduces medical costs. Additionally, many people prefer warmer climates, as evidenced by the tendency of retirees to move to southern locations. Global warming also increases levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Plants thrive in areas with high carbon dioxide concentrations, and crops that absorb more carbon dioxide may grow larger and have increased yields. Warmer climates also open up land for agricultural use in areas that were previously too cold for farming.
Effects of steroid withdrawal are known to emulate and kick start many other medical complications as well. Weakness, loss of appetite, fatigue, nausea, weight loss, vomiting, diarrhea (further resulting in liquid and electrolyte complications), as well as abdominal pain are some of the most common effects that steroid withdrawal is often associated with. Constant decrease in blood pressure which simultaneously causes a person to faint or causes fits and dizziness are other complications the steroid use can cause.
