    AmaX is not lying about it already being hot here. :melodramatic:

    You really DO need to stay hydrated or you're not going to get very far in this march.

    Potassium, salt, cell salts/bioplasma and a lot of pure water help to beat the heat.

    Coffee, tea and soft drinks/sodas tend to dehydrate one.

    It also helps to carry an umbrella so that you can create your own shade if you need it. When I lived in Clearwater, I always carried an umbrella with me during the hot season. That sun can get awfully hot in Florida.

    How many picketers have gotten heat stroke? I am not asking to be contrary. I am just curious. I am a believer in water and shade myself.

    Actually, for folks not used to hot climes . . . like, I grew up in Sydney, Oz . . . so heat is in my veins . . . but I know folks who grew up in cold climes suffer the heat more . . . so, the best handling is to get to one of those "drug stores" and get a bottle of
    Pedialyte - Wikipedia, the free


    Pedialyte is an oral electrolyte solution manufactured by Abbott Laboratories that is designed to replace fluids and minerals that are lost when a child has . . .

    There are store brand versions that are cheap. It is water plus electrolytes that replaces the bodily fluids lost due to excess sweating. Use some water too, but to be most wise; use some pedialyte.

    For sure it's needed to replace the electrolytes but there's got to be better ways than Pedialyte where you're putting all this artificial crap in your body:

    Yeh, don't buy that shit, Type4 . . . . you are right to read the label.

    They also make simple plain, un-flavored "pedialyte" . . . . . best is the store brands . . . and it's simple water, electrolytes and glucose or dextrose as the sugar carrier that is the agent for easy transport of the electrolytes into your system. (dextrose is only heated starch i.e., toasted bread :p) The "sugar" content is what makes it work most easily because it carries the minerals.

    In actuality, I used it with our cat when she had some bouts of diarrhea. It got the moggy back to good spirits and eating again.

    Though Pedialyte is a brand name rather like Kleenex or Xerox . . . it is now the generic name for the thing. I first heard of it when the Red Cross and US Gov agencies were shipping the stuff to help kids and adults in cholera outbreaks. Those that die of cholera die of dehydration from diarrhea and vomiting.

    Water is fine for drinking at a Clearwater protest. Just be aware of the public bathrooms in the area you will be protesting. You'll be drinking & pee'ing ALOT.

    Why pay money when you can mix your own? Per WebMD:

    ETA Sorry for the thread drift. Fingers crossed for smooth and successful protest!

    I live in the UK. I had to look up the definiton of "hot weather".

    Today it's cold and wet here. Or what we call "normal weather".:storm:
