Tips for protection against heat

Dizziness, headaches, exhaustion, nausea and vomiting: These can be consequences of great heat if the body is not yet accustomed to it. Particularly at risk are babies, small children, but also the chronically ill and the elderly if they take certain medications or drink too little. This was pointed out by Baden-Württemberg’s Minister of Health Manfred Lucha.
The Ministry of Health has published a series of tips on how to behave: stay in cool rooms, especially during the midday heat, and generally in the shade if possible. Postpone outdoor activities until cooler hours. Drink enough and eat only light meals. Ventilate the home at night and in the early morning. During the day, darken the rooms, for example with roller shutters. Wear light-colored cotton clothing and headgear and sunglasses in the sun. Sun rays can damage the eyes and skin, even causing cancer, so use sunscreen.
