As the summer season begins, temperatures soar and the risk of heat exhaustion increases. Dr. Gill of the Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine offers advice on how to avoid dehydration and heat illnesses.
Summer is just around the corner, which means parties, vacations and holidays. With these fun, relaxing events, it’s not uncommon to unwind and celebrate with a drink in hand. Moderation is key in most things, but is especially important when it comes to consuming alcoholic beverages. A couple of drinks can leave you feeling in a comfortable place, but have you ever wondered what effects overindulging in alcohol can have on your body immediately, or even a few years down the line?
