How sweltering heat makes you moody

 

The effects of extreme heat on health are severe, with the body’s most common response to high temperature being dehydration.

During a heatwave, anyone can develop heat exhaustion or heatstroke, which can cause symptoms such as dizziness, headache and fainting. But some people are at greater risk, particularly – the very young, the elderly, and people with chronic diseases and/or mental illness.

But, heat-related illnesses and deaths are preventable by taking sensible precautions when the temperature is very high.

Now, a new research has shown how heatwave impacts an individual’s social and mental well-being.

It says that people tend to become moody and also less helpful or ‘pro-social’ when it is uncomfortably hot.
