heat stroke is always a risk in summer sports especially in football and running. The cause of heat stroke is when we exercise and our bodies cool off by sweating. As we perspire, we loose necessary body fluids. if we do not replace these fluids, we become dehydrated. this makes it difficult to sweat and cool down, which can result to heat energy.During regular exercise, 70 to 90 percent of the energy our bodies produce is released by heat. Many factors can hinder heat release and perspiration.
