TOO MUCH SUN CAN MAKE YOU DUMB!

National Enquirer - - HEALTH WATCH -

THE hot sun re­ally can fry your brain! A new study found too much heat on the head ham­pered the thought process! Ac­cord­ing to re­searchers, the beat­ing sun can af­fect your brain even if your body tem­per­a­ture re­mains nor­mal. That’s “sim­ply be­cause the head is ex­posed to high so­lar ra­di­a­tion,” said An­dreas Flouris,

an as­so­ciate pro­fes­sor in the de­part­ment of ex­er­cise sci­ence at the Univer­sity of Thes­saly in Greece. Heat im­pacts think­ing by un­der­min­ing the way the ner­vous sys­tem works, Flouris said. “As a re­sult, heat re­duces the speed at which in­for­ma­tion is trans­ferred”

and af­fects think­ing, he ex­plained.
