    The brain regulates your body temperature to stay around 98.6 (F)

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The brain plays a crucial role in regulating body temperature. It does so by monitoring the temperature of the blood and sending signals to various parts of the body to adjust heat production or loss. This process is known as thermoregulation. The brain ensures that the body temperature stays around 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit, which is considered the normal body temperature for most individuals.

    B. False
    Explanation
    Water should not be consumed as fast as possible by someone suffering from heat cramps. While it is important to stay hydrated, drinking water too quickly can lead to discomfort and potentially worsen the cramps. It is recommended to sip water slowly and take small, frequent sips to prevent further muscle cramping and allow the body to properly absorb the water.
