Protect Your Kids From the Heat - US News
EDT + More By Robert Preidt, HealthDay Reporter SUNDAY, June 29, 2014 (HealthDay News) -- Parents need to be aware that hot weather can pose a serious threat to children and must take steps to protect their youngsters, an expert says. In extremely hot weather, children's play time should be restricted to early morning or late afternoon, Dr. Eric Kirkendall from Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center recommended in a medical center news release. Parents also need to monitor children's physical activity to make sure they don't overexert themselves. "Keep them well-hydrated with water, and take frequent breaks to allow them to come inside and cool off," Kirkendall said. Hot weather puts children at risk for three types of problems, he noted. "Heat stroke, heat exhaustion and heat cramps are reactions caused by exposure to high temperatures combined with high humidity," Kirkendall said. "The most serious of these is heat stroke." Heat cramps typically occur in the abdomen and legs, especially the calf or thigh muscles. There is no fever. Symptoms of heat exhaustion include pale skin, profuse sweating, nausea, dizziness, fainting and weakness. Children with heat exhaustion require medical attention. Symptoms of heat stroke include hot flushed skin, high fever (over 104 degrees F), confusion and other altered mental states, and seizures. This is a life-threatening emergency and 911 needs to be called immediately, Kirkendall said. Keep the child as cool as possible while waiting for emergency crews to arrive. For example: move the child to a cool, shady place or an air-conditioned room; fan the child; sponge the child's entire body with cool water. If the cool water makes the child shiver, stop. If the child is awake, give him or her as much cold water as they can drink. Don't use fever medicines, because they do nothing to treat heat stroke, Kirkendall said.

foodconsumer.org - Garcinia cambogia prevents diet-induced renal damage
The study shows that rats fed on high fat diet or high sugar diet, but also receiving garcinia cambogia supplements improved body weight, renal function and oxidative status that were worsened by either diet. For the study, rats were fed a standard control diet for 12 weeks or a diet containing 65% high sucrose diet or 35% fat diet (high fat diet) for eight weeks and then high fat diet groups were divided into two groups with one group supplemented with garcinia cambogia and another without. Likewise, the high sugar group was also divided into two groups with one group supplemented with garcinia cambogia and the other without. Both high fat diet and high fat diet caused a significant increase in feed intake, body weight and weight in mesenteric, Perirenal and epididymal adipose tissues. Biochemically, both diets increased serum levels of urea, creatinine, blood sugar, low density lipoprotein cholesterol, triacylglycerol, total cholesterol, and malondialdehyde, but decreased levels of nitric oxide (NO). Garcinia cambogia supplementation improved the unfavorable changes and increased levels of nitric oxide. That is, rats fed diets supplemented with garcinia cambogia had better body mass index, kidney function, triacylglycerol and oxidative biomarkers, compared with rats that were not supplemented with garcinia cambogia.
