Why does the heat make us feel crummy?

[WCCO-TV, July 09, 2020] We know it’s been toasty this summer. According to the MN State Climatology Office, last month was in the top-10 for hottest Junes in Minnesota. July already appears to be headed that way. On Wednesday, the heat index went above 100.

So, why does the heat make us feel crummy? Good Question.

“It’s your body’s way of telling you that your body temperature is rising out of control,” says Dr. Enoch Arhinful, a general internal medicine physician with Allina Health.
