Like many health problems, a heat stroke can be prevented. Some things that you can do to lower your risk of having a heat stroke include:
Drinking plenty of fluids. Do not drink alcoholic drinks, sugary drinks, or very cold drinks. Staying indoors as much as you can. It is best to stay in areas where an air conditioner is running. Taking cold showers or cold baths often. Wearing lightweight, loose-fitting, and light-colored clothing. Not leaving anyone in a closed, parked vehicle. Limiting any outdoor activities to morning or evening hours. Resting often in shady areas. Wearing SPF 15 or higher sunscreen that also offers broad spectrum or UVA/UVB protection.
Air conditioned locations to spend the day in, if you don't have air conditioning at home.

Radon is the #1 cause of cancer after smoking and kills more than 21,000 Americans every year. Radon is radiation and like all other forms of radiation, is completely invisible. Radon can cause extensive cell damage and creates the mutated cells that turn into cancer. Many families are living in homes with radiation levels that exceed the EPA's allowable limits for Nuclear Power Facilities and are unknowingly being exposed to higher radiation doses than hundreds of chest x-rays every year.
