Health Choice Minute

In the hot summer months, we know it’s important to stay hydrated, wear sunscreen, and take breaks from the sun when possible. But what are the consequences of not doing those things? Heat related illness. The thing is, heat related illness can look different for different people. According to the CDC, the more extreme consequences of a heat related illness could be damage to vital organs such as the brain- leading possibly to death. In places with high humidity, like the southeastern United States, the risks of heat illness is more significant since it is harder for the human body to cool itself through sweat being evaporated. For specific information on different types of heat related illness, visit the CDC’s page for topics on the following, and more!

  • Groups of people at greatest risk
  • Heat stroke
  • Heat exhaustion
  • Heat cramps
  • Heat rash
  • Medications that may increase risks
