Constant scorching temperatures can be quite exhausting, so it's important to keep yourself hydrated.
Doctor Chad Oler, of Madison's Natural Path Health Center says the body can lose more than a gallon of water during the day. He adds .it's important to keep yourself hydrated by drinking small amounts throughout the day, since your body only absorbs 2 to 4 ounces of water in a 30 minute span.
Dr. Oler says being dehydrated can really take a toll on your body.
"you don't think the same, your performance whether it's mental, physical, psychological, they're all depressed when you're dehydrated"
Drinking at least five glasses of water a day can significantly decrease the risk of some cancers.
