The Physical Effects of Homelessness

Homelessness and poor physical health go hand in hand. Common health problems include respiratory conditions such as asthma, bronchitis and pneumonia; cardiovascular conditions such as heart problems, blood pressure issues and diabetes; cancer; epilepsy/seizures; wound infections; and renal, hernia and liver damage.
