Cold Weather Dehydration Is A Huge Threat!

Researchers have found that frostbite and hypothermia are not the only dangers for those who exercise, hike and play outdoors in the winter. Surprisingly, there is an increased risk for dehydration! You see, when the weather is cold, unlike hot weather or after sweaty workouts, people do not feel thirsty. How is water from our body lost? Through breathing. We do not sense why water intake may be needed because sweat evaporates beneath clothing in cold, dry air.

Since our bodies are made up of about two thirds water, it only takes a few percent of water loss to become dehydrated. It is interesting to note that our body relies on the sensation of thirst to maintain its fluid balance. The key to be adequately hydrated is to drink plenty of water, especially when outdoors in cold weather. Clear urine is a good indicator which shows you are not at risk of becoming dehydrated.

Stacey Dash Hospitalized!

Dash Hospitalized

Oh no!

Stacey Dash, Clueless girl turned Single Lady, has been hospitalized for "dehydration."

She was admitted to Encino Hospital in L.A., and apparently suspects it all stems from a meal she ate on Sunday night.

Sounds like food poisoning, because Dash "hasn't been able to hold down food or liquids … not even water."

Stacey was even plugged into an IV and treated, released soon after — so at least it wasn't crazy enough to keep her there forever!

That's good news!

Feel better, Stacey!
