The best way avoid heat-related illnesses is to remain adequately hydrated. Even with the popularity of water bottles and tumbler to-go cups, many people fail to drink enough water while they are outside in the summer heat.

You should also refrain from caffeinated beverages, such as soda, and alcohol which can cause dehydration.
