The summer is back and so are summer diseases. Some precautions may help us ward off these diseases, which are mostly water-borne. Accumulation of water on the roads and outside the houses promotes the growth of mosquitoes that spread diseases like malaria and dengue fever. Consumption of cut fruits or food from the roadside can prove disastrous. Reports have revealed that exposure to sunlight for a long time at this time of the year can make the body temperature shoot up to 106 to 107 degree Celsius, causing brain fever and cardiac arrest. There is also the chance of getting sunstroke with symptoms like drowsiness, headache, nausea, dizziness and abdominal pain. In Delhi, on an average, 12 persons die of sunstroke every year. Taking a lot of fluids while traveling can help fend this malady. Consuming boiled food would be the best. It is advised to avoid taking juices from roadside, especially sugarcane juice.Medical professionals also suggest to take Electrol as a fluid thrice a day as it contains all contents needed by the human body. Apart from this, jaljeera, lemon juice and bel juice can help as they contain precious vitamins. The food must be rich in fibre. Dal, curd, vegetables, chicken and ice creams would add balance to the diet.
