The arrival of warm, humid weather also means the arrival of heat-related conditions like heat stroke.  The Sudbury and District Health Unit says ways to avoid heat stroke or exhaustion are to avoid too much sun, cool down with wet towels, avoid heavy meals and drink plenty of water.  The health unit also suggests avoiding alcoholic or caffeine-type drinks.  If you feel cramps in your abdomen or legs, are confused or headachy or you feel faint and are breathing rapidly, chances are you’re experiencing something heat-related.  The health unit says if you come down with these symptoms, call 9-1-1.
