The effect of climate on human beings, especially sick ones, has understandably been a matter of great interest to New Orleans' physicians for many decades, and Dr. George Burch and colleagues have been painstakingly studying the effects of hot, humid environment on patients with cardiovascular disease for over twenty years.
