Staying Cool in a Heat Wave
In this heat and humidity, it’s more important than ever to stay cool. Geisinger Health System’s Dr. Joseph Colancecco, a doctor of internal medicine, stresses the important of keeping hydrated, staying out of the sun, and exercising in the early morning or later at night when it’s cooler. “The body will naturally perspire so as to keep a steady body temperature,” says Dr. Colancecco. “So you have to be careful to drink plenty of fluids.”
