Water – not Dr Pepper and certainly not beer – is what your body needs to cool from the inside. This time of year, you can’t drink enough. Heat injury – marked by heavy sweating, muscle cramps, weakness, dizziness, nausea, weak but rapid pulse and headaches – is no joke. There’s bearing up, and there’s stupid. Even high school football coaches have figured that out.
For gosh sake, stay out of the sun as much you can.
Gee willikers, such salty language from a family newspaper.
