Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Though I think this can be on topic but I request that you don't just "pose" a question to an audience and wait for what they say. Make your effort in answering the question –  WYSIWYG 13 hours ago

@WYSIWYG I have no relevant knowledge about human physiology or how environment different from Earth's affects human body, so I can't make any kind of educated guesses at this point, which is why I simply asked if anyone happens to know something about it. –  user1306322 4 hours ago
