Why do we sweat?

  •  We sweat   because  humidity gets to us and we get hot. What happens when we get hot? We sweat. The reason why is because it cools us off.
  • Sweat evapoarates in the air. This requires energy input, which it receives from your body. It helps your body cool down.
  • Everybody sweats. If we didn't sweat we would suffer from sun stroke or heat exhaustion. We sweat through glands that are located under our armpits, on our head, between our legs and on our feet.
  • FACTS:
    Did you know that we sweat all the time even on cold days!
    Did you know that there are about 2 million sweat pores on our body!
    Did you know that sweat is odourless. The smell is the sweat decomposing.
