Cup of coffee is a regular habit for many Russians. However, a large amount of this drink can lead to dehydration, which is especially dangerous in the heat.
“Strict contraindications and evidence on coffee heat no. The main effect of coffee accelerate removal of fluids from the body. In hot weather it is especially dangerous dehydration. It is therefore important before taking or after taking to drink a glass of water. And, of course, to follow the course of the day for the well-being,” said Irina Yartseva.
