Ah, the Good Old Summertime! Many of us, especially in the north, look forward to this short, delightful season all year long because it is such a fun time. And yet it can be dangerous too. We want to protect ourselves from sun overexposure, without using unhealthy chemical sun blocks. We want to protect ourselves from bugs, without using bug sprays that are almost as poisonous to us as they are to the bugs! We want to go on picnics and beach parties and make sure our food is safe to eat, and we don’t load up with sugar. Hikers, joggers and bicyclists want to avoid ticks that cause Lyme disease. We want to enjoy all the festivities while avoiding heat exhaustion or dehydration. And we need to make sure our children and pets are comfortable and safe, especially around water, and when we are traveling.
Join our Health Guru, Beverly Nadler, today as she discusses the many safe and sane ways to really enjoy the good old summertime.
