    Adults who stay well-hydrated appear to live longer and develop fewer chronic health conditions, a study has suggested. Researchers found that drinking enough water each day ‘may slow down ageing’. The study of more than 11,000 over-30s tracked sodium levels in their blood, which increase with dehydration. They found adults with higher levels of sodium were 64 per cent more likely to develop chronic diseases such as heart failure and strokes, lung disease, diabetes and dementia, and to die at a younger age. The US team suggested restricting water leads to DNA damage and inflammation, speeding up the ageing process.

    A Texas doctor who allegedly injected poison into IV bags, leading to the death of one physician and cardiac emergencies in 11 patients, has been caught on surveillance footage tampering with the bags. Anesthesiologist Raynaldo Ortiz Jr., 59, was arrested September 15 and is charged with tampering with a consumer product causing death or serious injury, intentionally adultering a drug knowing it would likely cause an adverse health reaction among other charges. Video shows Ortiz emerging into an empty hallway moving toward a fridge used for warming saline solution. He passes the fridge, before returning to leave an IV bag inside. Throughout this process, Ortiz is shown scanning the room.

    Dr. Melanie Kaspar, an anesthesiologist at Surgicare North Dallas who died in June Dallas police opened a probe into the death of an anesthesiologist who suffered a heart-attack after administering herself with IV fluids she brought home from the surgery center where she worked, two months before an 18-year-old boy almost died during surgery at the same facility. The investigation comes after Dr. Melanie Kaspar, 55, died of cardiac arrest in June after she brought an IV bag home from Surgicare North Dallas and hooked herself up to it because she was feeling dehydrated. She suffered the heart attack at the $1 millionvilla she shares with actuary husband John, 56, minutes after administering the IV.

    Dehydration may not seem like a serious medical issue, yet when you realize that our bodies are made of 60 to 70 percent water, it puts the necessity for adequate water intake into a bit more perspective. Water not only makes up most of our bodies, but it also keeps a majority of our crucial systems running smoothly. This includes a myriad of bodily functions such as removing waste from our blood, keeping blood vessels open so that “important nutrients can travel freely to our kidneys,” regulating body temperature, helping your brain function, aiding digestion, and water even boosts our immune system. No matter how important water is for our bodies, at one point or another we all find ourselves not drinking enough or consuming enough water-rich foods. It’s also guaranteed that we will all experience dehydration multiple times throughout our lives. This is especially true during hot weather, physical activity, or sickness. Luckily, if you find yourself suddenly dehydrated and you want to take some immediate action, there are a handful of ways to start replenishing your body!...
    Police in Indiana are ramping up their hunt for the family of a boy who was found dead in a suitcase in woods last month, revealing that the child was clean, clothed, showed no signs of abuse and died of dehydration.  The five-year-old remains unidentified more than a month after he was discovered in a hard-shell case suitcase with the phrase 'Welcome to the fabulous Las Vegas' on it in woods near Salem, Indiana.  The only description police have given so far is that he was black and four feet tall. They do not want to share a description of his clothing for fear that it could lead to erroneous tips.  But they are now hunting the people responsible for his death. An autopsy has revealed that the child showed no signs of physical abuse.  He was clean when he was found in the suitcase, but died as the result of an electrolyte deficiency likely caused by gastroenteritis.  The five-year-old boy found stuffed inside this suitcase in woods in Indiana in April died from dehydration, police have revealed as they continue to...
    Dehydration can be an uncomfortable nuisance, yet, if left unattended, can turn into a serious medical issue. This is mostly because our bodies run off of water given that we’re made of 60 to 70 percent water. This little fact puts the necessity for adequate water intake into a bit more perspective. Along with quenching our thirst, water also keeps a majority of our crucial systems running smoothly, removes waste from our blood, keeps blood vessels open so that “important nutrients can travel freely to our kidneys,” regulates body temperature, helps your brain function, aids digestion, and boosts our immune system. Humans absolutely and under no circumstances can live without water! With that said, staying hydrated is easier said than done in this hectic world of ours. Dehydration can be caused by various things including simply not consuming enough water, extremely hot weather, physical activity, or sickness. Of course, if you find yourself dehydrated, there are a few ways to rehydrate. First and foremost, just drink some water. With that said, there are a handful of plant-based foods...

    The climate crisis is killing migrants who are crossing the US border from Mexico, a new study finds. Many people making the dangerous journey have died of dehydration, but a team of American scientists found that, specifically, most travelers die in the area between Nogales, Mexico and Three Point, Arizona. This is a region within the Sonoran desert. The area has a concentration of places with the greatest predicted evaporated water loss, the study found. Those who trek through it experience disorientation and organ failure that can lead to death; more men have died of dehydration than women, the researchers determined. The study concludes that in 30 years, even under an 'intermediate mitigation' scenario, people would be expected to lose one-third more water on a journey across the US southern border than they would today.

    California investigators believe they have determined what caused a young family to die on a hiking trail in mid-August. The investigators discovered the hikers, John Gerrish, his wife Ellen Chung, their 1-year-old daughter, Miju, and pet dog, Oski, only carried a total of 84 ounces on their hike in the Sierra National Forest. The water amount was far short of the 320 ounces recommended for hiking the trail they were on, which can reach up to 109 degrees during the summer. A survival trainer believed the family was "caught off guard" by their circumstances, according to the San Francisco Chronicle . “It is likely the child began to succumb first, which hurried the parents’ efforts up the hill," the trainer told investigators. "When one could no longer continue, they stayed behind to care for the child and pet, while the other tried to forge on and get help for their loved ones.

Their bodies were discovered on Aug. 17 along with the body of their dog, according to video footage of the press conference shared by The Fresno Bee. The location where the bodies were found was originally treated as a hazmat scene because the cause of the deaths could not be immediately determined. At the time of their deaths, the Sierra National Forest had toxic algae bloom warnings in effect. "Heat-related deaths are extremely difficult to investigate," Briese said. He added that an empty 85-ounce water bladder backpack was found on the family, and no other water containers or water filtration systems were discovered, according to NBC News.

    A Northern California family and their dog who were mysteriously found dead in a remote hiking area most likely died from hyperthermia and probable dehydration, authorities said Thursday.  The Mariposa County Sheriff's Office previously said the updates on the deaths of John Gerrish, his wife, Ellen Chung, their 1-year-old daughter, Miju, and their dog, Oski, would be the final investigative update on the case.  CALIFORNIA AUTHORITIES TURN TO CELLPHONE DATA AND SOCIAL MEDIA IN MYSTERIOUS DEATHS OF FAMILY John Gerrish and Ellen Chung had recently moved to the Marisopa area with their 1-year-old daughter and dog.

    More than two months after a Northern California family was found dead on a hiking trail in a remote area of the Sierra National Forest, authorities say they died of heat-related illness and probable dehydration. The family of three — John Gerrish, Ellen Chung and their 1-year-old daughter, Miju — along with their dog Oski were found dead Aug. 17 in an area known as Devil’s Gulch along the Merced River. A family friend had reported them missing the day before. Jeremy Briese, Mariposa County’s sheriff and coroner, announced the findings at a news conference Thursday afternoon. Oski’s cause of death is undetermined, but signs point to heat-related illness as well. The young family’s death baffled investigators as myriad theories swirled over how they died. Physical force and violence were ruled out quickly, as was toxic gas from a shuttered mine shaft in the area. Lightning strikes were eliminated, and investigators moved on from considering suicide, drugs or alcohol use. But one theory persisted: whether toxic algae blooms in the Merced River killed them. Investigators took...

    A desperate mum-of-two drank her own urine to keep her two children alive by breastfeeding them after their boat was smashed apart by a wave during an outing with friends. Mariely Chacon, 40, sacrificed her own life to save those of her six-year-old son and two-year-old daughter by trying to stave off dehydration so they had a fighting chance of surviving the harrowing shipwreck. She was left adrift with her kids, found clinging to their dead mum, and their 25-year-old nanny Veronica Martinez for four days in baking temperatures after heading out on a boat trip with family and friends that turned to disaster after a huge wave smashed the vessel's hull.

    A shocking simulation shows how athletes competing in the Tokyo Olympics risk heatstroke, dehydration and exhaustion because of the extreme temperatures at what is set to be the hottest games on record.  Running in 90°F (32°C) heat and 90 per cent humidity can raise their core temperature over the 'tipping point' of 102°F (39°C) where it becomes dangerous, experts say. In a 10,000 metre race they will lose almost 1.5 pints of water and could see their core head temperature reach more than 104°F (40°C). This can lead to dizziness, nausea, seizures and — in extreme cases — even lasting damage to the nervous system and brain because of how vulnerable it is to heat. Scroll down for video Although the race is set to take place after sunset at 20:30 BST on July 30, the simulation shows athletes are still likely to face gruelling conditions. The engineers presented two different scenarios: Average conditions for the time of year with 80°F (27°C) air temperature and 70 per cent humidity, and hotter than average conditions with 90°F (32°C) and 90 per cent humidity. In the...
    Dehydration Dehydration can also be a problem for pets in summer. According to the researcher, some of the signs of dehydration in dogs include sunken eyes, dry gums, and general weakness in the animal. Also, dogs pant to cool off and they often gasp frequently when they are tired or feel hot. On the other hand, it is essential that dogs and cats that spend most of their time outdoors have access to lots of clean fresh water. The water bowls will need to be filled several times a day during the summer. Likewise, you will have to change your food more regularly, since in the heat it spoils quickly and flies are attracted to food that is left out.
    WHEN the UK sees a scorching summer day, people flock outside to make the most of it. While it’s possible to enjoy the weather safely, there are public health warnings of heat-related illness in place. 1If you can't cool down within 30 minutes of trying, it could be a medical emergencyCredit: Getty People have been warned to take extra precaution for themselves and loved ones to avoid becoming sick. Most of us don’t consider that the sunshine and warmth could be deadly if not taken seriously.  Research shows that most people don't see themselves as at risk from hot weather, even when they are, according to the British Heart Foundation. But there are thousands of deaths from heat-related illnesses every year. In summer 2020, there were 2,556 "excess deaths" during the three hottest periods, the highest ever recorded. Most were in people over the age of 65 years old, as not everyone is at the same risk of hot temperatures. Those who are older, have extra weight, poor general health or low fitness may struggle in the heat...
