Dr. Yacob Mithai is a practicing physician in the field of healthcare in the state of Kerala in India for the last 29 years. His interest is spread across the fever, inflammation and back pain. he has printed and published nine books in the related subjects. he has written hundreds of articles in various magazines and presented 9 research papers in Indian Science Congress in the years 2008, 2009 & 2010,2016, 2017.

According to the facts of physics, if temperature increases, thermal expansion of an object is positive it will expand and with decrease of temperature it will shrink. Pressure will increase due to increase of temperature.On the contrary, during fever we can see blood vessels and skin are shrunk, pressure decreases, body shivers, sleep increases, motion decreases, inflammation increases, body pain increases, blood circulation decreases, dislike cold substances etc,. In fever, the firing rate of Warm sensitive neurons decreases, and the firing rate of Cold sensitive neurons increase. At the same time if we apply hotness from outside by thermal bag or if we drink hot water, our body acts according to the Facts of Physics- increase of temperature pressure will also increase, expands blood vessels and skin, body sweats, motion will increase, inflammation will decrease , body pain will decrease, blood circulation will increase, like cold substances etc.. During fever, why our body acts against Facts of Physics? We will get a clear answer if we find out the purpose of the fever. No medical books clarify this. During fever, if the temperature of fever is not a surplus temperature or if it is not supposed to be eliminated from the body, the shrinking of skin and blood vessels, shivering of body, dislike towards cold substances etc. are a protective covering of the body to increase blood circulation to important organs of the body it is not against the facts of physics.
