Summer means fun in the sun and more outdoor playtime, but the high temperatures can also wreak havoc on your body. Be sure to take the proper precautions when you’re soaking up the rays, headed for a run or just going out for a drive.
Your body has to work to maintain a healthy body temperature. This is especially true during the summer months when the temperature can reach record levels. If your body can’t cool itself off, the results could be fatal.
Dehydration is one more heat-related sickness that can be dangerous. Children and people over the age of 60 are at higher risk.
It may be tempting to leave a child in the car to run a quick errand in the store, but doing so for even a few minutes during the summer can end up in tragedy.
If you soak up the sun’s rays without proper protection, you could be causing some serious harm to your skin.
