Summer Heat: You Have An Excuse To Be Forgetful

 

With more hot, and humid weather on the weekend, it’s going to feel like 39 tomorrow, you’ll have an excuse for being forgetful.  A recent Harvard University study reveals that heatwaves may cause people to become “dumb” The study found that students in non-air conditioned buildings performed 13% poorer on math and memory tests than students with air conditioning.  The memory loss can affect more than just students. Scientists concluded that the warmer a building is, the worse the effect will be on the human brain.
