Colombia Health Official Gives Tips To Get Through A Heat Wave


Good morning. I'm David Greene. Now, there are different ways to get through a heat wave, but a government official in Colombia told residents to take one activity off their list - sex. The health secretary in the city of Santa Marta said stay hydrated, wear loose clothing and no sex. Now, in reporting this story out, The Associated Press cited the American Heart Association, which says sex doesn't strain the heart any more than walking up two flights of stairs.
