    Science has leamt a great deal from polar expeditions. For instance, we nowknow a lot more about the effects polar conditions have on a person's mind andbody.

    In ihe early days, expiorers otten went mad. One cause of this madness was laterdiscovered: when people aren't used to living in extreme cold, their bodies use upa lot of energy to keep warm and this gets rid of all the vitamins in the body. Thebrain, deprived of vitamins, can't work normally, at least until the body gets usedto the cold.

    The time spent in total darkness also has a negative effect on people's minds.Winter in Polar Regions is characterized by permanent night and lasts severalmonths. Human beings are not used to spending long periods of time in the dark.ln northern latitudes people get depressed during the dark winter months. Nowwe know that this depression known as SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder) - canbe reduced by the use of sun lamps.

    Low temperatures can cause any part of the body to freeze. This painful conditionis called frostbite. Although the body does get used to functioning in lowtemperatures, the danger of frostbite is always there if temperatures fall belowfreezing point.'Nowadays, polar explorers carry medication, which they can taketo allow the blood to flow and slowly deft'ost the affected parts.

    Another common disorder is altitude sickness. The ice is sometimes more thanthree kilometers thick, which makes Antarctica one of the highest regions in theworld. At that altitude there is little oxygen, so headaches, vomiting anddehydration - the symptoms of altitude sickness - are cornmon. After about ayear at high altitude; the body gets used to the lack of oxygen in the air. ltcompensates by storing more oxygen in the blood.
