The body temperature of human beings is on the decline, compared to 150 years ago
the WASHINGTON - with Respect to the 1860's, the body temperature of people is decreased by nearly one degree. In men, for example, has increased from 37,16 degrees Celsius in the early 1800's to the 36,6 today. It was discovered by a group of researchers at Stanford University in the United States in a study published in the journal eLife. To arrive at these conclusions, the researchers measured the body temperatures of people from the years 2000 and then to compare them with the records of the soldiers who fought in the civil war in the United States. The study reveals that modern humans might have a body temperature lower than 0.59 as compared to their counterparts of the NINETEENTH century, while the temperature of the women would be dropped to 0.32 degrees.

The researchers say that the cause of the cooling is "inherently not provable", but consider that this may be caused by the different feeding conditions and life-style. "Our temperature is not the one that people think that it is," says Julie Parsonnet , professor of Medicine and Research political and health at Stanford University. "What we all know: namely, that our normal temperature is around 37 degrees, it is wrong. On average, the body temperature of the americans - still - is decreased of 0.03 degrees over a decade in this part. Physiologically, we are different from how we were in the past.

The environment in which we live has changed, including the temperature in our homes, our contact with the microorganisms and with the food that we eat. All of these things mean that although we think we are being monomorfi and that we were the same during all the phases of the evolution, in fact, physiologically, we change constantly," says Parsonnet. Researchers are trying to find the cause of this lowering of the body temperature, in the belief that change can be a reduced metabolic rate, given that the body is having to work as was required in the NINETEENTH century, thanks to the style of life today more convenient and comfortable.

scholars speculate that the decrease of body temperature may be caused by the fact that our bodies are attacked much less often by germs and diseases, given the progress of modern medicine. "Inflammation produces all the types of proteins and cytokines that increase the metabolism and thus the temperature," says Parsonnet.
