Health Tips Hot summer weather may drive some people to drink. Drink water, that is. "The body loses large amounts of fluids during hard physical activity, particularly if the weather is hot and humid," said Dr. Jim Pivarnik, an exercise physiologist at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. "It is impor- tant to replenish them. The best way, as obvious as it sounds, is to drink plenty of water." Whether working construc- tion, running, or merely spending a day at the beach, the heat can sap the body of precious fluids, leading to dehydration. The simple rule, according to Pivaruik, is to pay attention to urine color. People who have adequate amounts of body water content normally have pale-colored urine. A darker yellow color indicates that the kidneys are forced to con- centrate urine. b>, Have the natural, healthy look you've always wanted!

Kearney 874-3647 , Not drinking enough fluids can affect exercise performance, and can lead to heat illness, which can be fatal, Pivaruik says. Signs of water depletion in- dude extreme thirst, dry tips and tongue. In several eases, there can be an increase in heart rate and breathing, dizziness, confusion, and eventual coma. The skin can appear dry and non-elastic while the sufferer may feel lethargic, and have headaches, cramps, and a pale complexion. Don't wait until there are symptoms to take precautions warns Pivarnik. "Thirst is not a good in- dicator by itself since by the time you are thirsty, the body's water reserves have already decreased to unhealthy levels," he said. Pivarnik suggests drinking water continuously to keep the body hydrated. "Take a drink every time you pass a water fountain, and keep a water bottle at your work area and sip on it through the day."

V consumption throughoutthe day rather than trying to make up for low levels in large gulps. A mini- mum of one pint of water per hour is a good starting point. During exercise or strenuous outdoor activity, Pivarnik says to drink approximately 8 ounces of water every 15 minutes. Although the body can sweat two quarts of fluid in one hour during the hot summer weather, it can only absorb about one quart, making it crucial to be "stocked up" before, during, and after those summertime ac- tivities. Social Security News by Jim Talbot, Sodnl Secuty manas in lunariilo young Workers Should Un- derstand Value Of Social Security Survivors Benefits I read a sobering statistic the mhcr day-a person dies every six minutes in the United States as a result of an accident. And acci- dents are the leading canse of death among young men and women in the 25-44 age group. These statistics represent real tragedies in life-the loss of a wife or husband, mother or father, son or daughter. Families grieve and tryto pick up the pieces of their lives. The personal grief is too often accompanied by considera- tious of how to replace the loss of income caused by the worker's death. Insurance helps in about two-thirds of the deaths of younger workers-but only as a lump-sum payment and usually in a much smaller amount than many would suppose. Social Security is a bulwark that most survivors can rely on, though. This fact is seldom thought of when people think about the So- cial Security program. The Social Security taxes you pay also go toward providing sur- vivors insurance. In fact, the value of the survivors insurance you have under Social Security is probably more than the value of your com- mercial life insurance. When someone wh has worked and paid into Social Security dies, survivor benefits can be paid to certain family members. These include widows, widowers (and divorced widows and widowers), children, and depend- cut parents. Right now, 98 out of every 100 children could get benefits if a working parent should die. In fact, Social Security pays more benefits to children than any other federal program.
