    Homo-static involves regulating the body’s normal temperature through evaporation of sweat. In highly humid conditions such as air temperature above 95 F, the sweat does not evaporate as quickly since the cooling mechanism becomes less effective. Dehydration occurs due to less fluid intake, excessive fluid losses and electrolyte imbalances at higher levels of relative humidity. This high body temperature can potentially cause brain damage and damage to body’s internal organs. Heat related illness may occur as a result of heat......
