Summer is deadly the number of unprovoked shark attack on -- ride.
The sharks don't get -- that these money.
-- global warming will create bigger stores dirty energy creates dirty whether.
In the -- deals look and that's what it came.
I didn't keep on its -- what are the risks.
What's the truth.
-- -- -- That's our show today.
It's hurricane season.
And I'm told that because of global warming there are more hurricanes that are hurricanes are stronger.
And of course we know you're supposed to put masking tape -- your windows in the shape of an -- or an asterisk to reinforce the glass.
So most of us understand that those are just facts want to -- talking about -- on a show about summer myths.
Because not it's true since the National Hurricane Center fox meteorologist Maria Molina says it -- so.
-- -- -- -- -- act act and always taped the windows but let's start with the first one.
I hear there are more hurricanes that it makes sense global warming the water's warmer towards.
Yes so a lot of people think that there are more hurricanes now and in the packs and that is absolutely false -- is known data to support that and we've actually seen in the data that in past years.
We have actually seen more hurricane activity in the 1880s.
There were more hurricanes making -- -- United States.
Then in current years -- can -- down that chart right there.
Now I think logically people try to make sense of -- -- you mention global warming oceans are warmer hurricanes need warm ocean waters to.
Right -- themselves they'd be where you get stronger to form there are countervailing forces when water gets warmer that.
Even the experts still don't understand don't fully understand and hurricanes are lot more complicated than just warm ocean waters now the property damage does keep going up but that's just because more people build on the coasts.
Possibly because more people build on the coast and also reports of severe weather had been going up -- in terms of tornadoes so that's another type of -- but.
You have to -- remember population goes up people move.
It's easier to report severe storms are more -- -- -- doesn't mean there are more store exactly social media has made it much easier for people to be able to share information.
People have cell -- now camera as people can take pictures of the severe storms and reported much easier than.
Fifteen years ago our second half.
Tape your windows this just makes sense this is scary.
-- -- -- not something anyway should be doing think about it.
He put tape on your windows -- recon hits the window.
Typically it would shatter it he didn't have tape on there.
You have tape on there it's going to break the windows and now you have potentially larger pieces of glass potentially deadlier pieces of glass flying around.
Part all every -- hurricanes coming racial pictures of people going in and your colleagues are saying.
You ought to do people don't know this and the way it was the weather service originally that suggested this -- now they've taken it.
Back that's right it was printed on old meteorological brochures of people we're seeing this as the official thing to do so and made it very confusing for -- wouldn't hear that originally.
And now we're telling them do not do it and -- -- about 7% of people currently in the southeastern United States believe this is what you should be doing it's a scary statistic.
Please not the tape on your windows stay away from the windows stay away from the windows.
What you should be doing during her teen is in a room with no windows and also -- -- lower part of your home.
Another myth some people believe he should open the window -- equalize the pressure.
So as the storm comes it won't blow all the glass out.
Yeah so no home is airtight.
So that pressure won't be equal ice and storms anyway and they're so big -- hundreds of miles wide so that -- slowly exactly.
Happen so don't open went down he opened the window it just lets that's a -- in lots of debris and and actually with the wind coming into your home will do.
It's possibly blow down the laws of your home and then your roof is gone.
For -- animals act differently win the storm's approach.
This is very interesting right back animals could instinct -- we know.
When hurricane is approaching and there has been research done that sharks this research from Florida that sharks actually seek deeper water when -- -- approach.
So this what is true just because we call it a myth doesn't mean it can't be true some myths turn out to be there to saying this and some are true -- this one.
Also -- birds sensitive to air pressure changes they hunkered down before the her case they hunker down that's right so they know when it's approaching.
So we'll watch the animals.
Another -- Hurricane Katrina was the deadliest.
Hurricane in history 18100 deaths pretty bad.
Pretty bad and unfortunately it's not the deadliest storm the United States than 19100.
-- Galveston so back in the year 9200.
Deaths in the United States so that was a category four storm hit Galveston Texas.
Thank you Maria and now not most controversial whether -- I'm told extreme weather is getting worse.
Because of global -- Not gonna more devastating impact of raging fires.
And crippling drought.
And more powerful storms.
Raging fires drought more powerful storms or -- -- get it dual.
Well let's ask the author of high tide on main street rising sea level in the coming coastal crisis.
That's ocean -- for John Englander let's also asked -- intelligence pat Michaels of the Cato Institute itself.
Pat should I be so scared as the president suggests.
That's so twentieth century.
What's happened in the last ten years is forecasts of global warming particularly in the last two years.
Have begun to come down we're seeing so called sensitivity of temperature -- being reduced by 40%.
In the new climate models that means we're gonna let -- climate models predicted the -- climate models were too hot.
That's finally being recognized all right so it's 40% less but that's if there -- if weather is worse that's a problem.
If you look at.
These things really don't show the signals that are supposed to and they haven't and you know there's this whole big thing about billion dollar disasters you've heard that billion dollar disasters are going up.
-- what you have to do is you have to take.
The damage and it just to for gross domestic product and inflation and we look at that it simply has no -- whatsoever.
That more people spend more -- stuff in the way of the weather.
All right John you don't buy all the scare mongering but you.
Are scared about parts of -- actually because the ice sheets are melting we've seen photographs the polar ice cap.
Diminishing year by year decade by decade Pat's right that there are variations within years you can take a seven year time frame -- Seventeen your time framing -- a different picture we've also reached a bit of a tipping point because we're turning point I should say.
Because we're now at a warming period when actually we should be entering the 80000 years going toward the next ice -- -- nobody cares about the next ice age obviously.
But the fact that the oceans are warmer -- tenths of a degree Celsius -- -- Fahrenheit.
And that the oceans are rising New Jersey New York's fourteen inches higher than a year ago -- a hundred years ago.
And we just see the photographs the Arctic ice kept disappearing but -- that are Greenland as pat and I have been.
And -- Antarctica and we can see signs of increased melting for the long term.
Which raises so as your book says a calming coastal crisis why crisis why can't we just suck it lost its mobile can and -- and actually I think this is that who we need to do we should slowly adjust we should realize that after 6000 years of stability.
That's sea level is going up and we need to begin planning because it's -- have drastic.
Com you know catastrophic effects harsh Ross.
All over the world.
Pat do you dispute that -- we ban adapting.
Over half the sea level rise on much of the East Coast doesn't have anything to do with the water it has to do the fact that the land is sinking.
-- at least fourteen inch rise is that you've seen in New Jersey I think eighteen inches of the southern and a test over the past 10000 years if we have we don't see you -- exactly and you would not have noticed that unless somebody told you that it happened down there.
The adaptation is a slow steady thing -- -- Usually do your head in disgust here -- pats have great professional contrarian and and I read his stuff for years -- let's be practical here in Miami Beach now there are streets their flooded.
During -- high tide a couple of days a month.
And the wheels of cars are actually rusting out in some neighborhoods because they're getting salt water on them regularly -- -- that's different than has been the case.
For a hundred years we want to do that.
We need to realize that it's happening because that means we we need to slowly adjust our shorelines our architecture build up set back.
Come up -- technologies like the Dutch do.
Where they actually allow for storms to go through the ground floor of buildings so pat I assume you don't dispute that and I assume you don't dispute John's point about the melting ice in green -- and.
Whoa wait a target -- I I certainly don't agree with him on an Arctic.
Antarctica is the largest body of -- on -- 90% of the world's nicest and America.
Computer models for the 21 century if we're gonna believe these things they actually predict that Antarctica gained -- why.
Because the ocean around and larnaca warms up a little bit.
There's more water vapor in the air and what's converged over the continent we think of falls as rain is -- it's also -- And feet.
Southern Hemisphere ice is expanding John is saying no -- -- as little complicated understand it's it's the biggest.
It's all I complicated OK but but Antarctic is confusing -- looks all white looks the same.
That's -- the east Antarctic -- two thirds of the continent is growing because more moisture in the air from warmer ocean.
Goes up and it's got to come down -- raining or snowing there comes down to -- -- -- east Antarctic is getting thicker and and has overcome the loss on west Antarctic -- until about three years ago what.
Can't part of canal is losing because there's some glaciers there that could slide into the ocean.
In a decade.
And -- some catastrophes.
Part we're not gonna solve this but do either -- -- not drive a car or say we can do anything about this in terms of.
Not causing global warming I go short on apocalypse futures I have lived through nine -- of the world environmental apocalypse.
Beginning with silent spring.
And you know we're still here and I have a feeling this is just going to be.
One a long series I think ocean sit -- occasion will be its replacement to prediction.
-- -- -- You wanna tax carbon you wanted to do something I think we should price -- I believe the free market.
And and I actually does not -- -- -- detects carbon there's going to be some pricing mechanism -- or we have to get also we need to get away from the subsidies like -- flood insurance.
Because one of the problems we're gonna face we agree on that -- I lost the beach house that we have a picture of it here.
How stupid is this the government encouraged me to build on the edge of -- -- we need to stop subsidizing.
And letting people think that if they -- in harm's way the governments -- -- come there and pay for the rebuilding because we're gonna go broke quicker doing that all right.
On that well thank you pat Michaels John and Linda are coming up killer bees.
Oil changes and shark attacks how worried should give -- Beach goers -- when there -- some are there hungry.
-- Going swimming this summer.
Are you willing to swim in the ocean.
Thanks in large part -- that movie.
Lot of people are scared of sharks and every couple years especially when there is some other news the media -- to death.
Shark invasion a number of unprovoked shark attacks.
On Iraq beach goers -- way there but some are there hungry -- scary start to shark season.
What does that mean.
Sharks get hungry in the -- where.
No it just means we spend -- time in the water.
But are sharks what we got to worry about Nokia and other stuff is much more likely to hurt you.
Ending the hard understands that he works at Ripley's aquarium in Toronto and helps the Discovery Channel -- it's shark week program so.
Andy this this fear is largely.
Absolutely the fear sharks is -- unfounded.
Around the globe there's less than a hundred shark -- per year on people.
-- counter -- that -- we -- -- three million sharks per year.
And in terms of stuff to worry about to driving to the B he -- it is more dangerous than the shark.
There's a lot of things more dangerous than sharks including vending machines there's more people killed every year by falling vending machines and my sharks.
But more seriously 3500.
Americans drown if you're gonna worry about someone and something in the water worry about them.
Drowning her at the beach bees stings killed many more people.
Definitely making sure your kids are safe in the water.
And avoiding rip currents those are far more dangerous than the sharks that are potentially at the beach.
Still you -- it just didn't sharks because you had a close encounter.
I did I was up five years old I was circling -- down -- Florida Keys and saw six foot Caribbean reef shark and as you can imagine.
It's a pretty life changing event for someone that side so -- -- big sharks sums by but it was.
-- those -- on no wonder -- -- for my entire life and it turns out if you slump and Florida odds are you have been.
Within a few feet of a shark and never -- I would say most people up and down -- the east and West Coast of they've been in the ocean they've probably got a lot closer sharks and they realize.
And the reality this is that sharks are not out hunting people.
There's over 500 species of sharks not one of them as humans on the diet when bites do happen with people.
That's the case mistaken identity where tiger shark may see someone on -- on the keyboard and think it's a sea turtle or great white might see.
Some -- surf report and think it's a sea lion which is their normal prey item you know people should just enjoy being -- the beach don't worry about sharks.
-- -- -- you Randy I hope people feel better.
And as you just hurt.
Sharks are less likely to her action that beats -- These things kill fifty to a hundred Americans every year.
And it may get worse because this documentary puts it strong.
Decades in the making is under way.
Creatures that won't -- I don't believe that we're gonna stop the spread of African.
They are moving through Florida headed for Georgia.
-- -- Now number more than one trillion.
And the killer -- -- could soon be heading your way.
On the -- order to get a note.
Well let's ask this guy who appears on the Animal Planet show infested.
He's beat rule bee removal specialist Mike -- got solved.
Should we be scared killer bees are common.
I haven't I wouldn't be any more afraid and you would have been struck by lightning.
I think your odds are probably a little higher but what's with this TV show that -- in fasting they're moving north they're everywhere.
Well when they were released from Brazil in 1957 they spread at a rate of about a hundred to 300 miles per year.
And I'll explain that this was an experiment that went wrong.
This was it did the -- were originally taken from Africa brought to Brazil to try and create a new and better be that would create more honey.
That would be more resistant to the various pathogens.
And it was an accidental release.
From one of the assistance that actually allow -- into the wild where they spread very rapidly north the roughly six states right now.
And they are more dangerous because they don't get discouraged -- chase you farther this is true.
Any measurement of how far -- will tissue in regards to European honey bees which is what we're used to and most other states is measured usually in yards.
Whereas with africanized honeybees.
Quote very but it's usually somewhere between a quarter mile up to a mile and off bee -- can kill -- Correct Texas -- and and the Merck manual for diagnosis saying about -- stings per pound of body weight.
Can be lethal.
So my forty -- son can take about 400 stings before can be lethal which is -- -- I can take 16100 stings I won't tell you how many I can take control and give it my way.
So if he said that answer is to run away this is correct.
The citizen to do would be around.
But very few people are being killed by killer -- one -- two per year.
Whether the media isn't worried about being is killing us they worry about bees invention.
Of being apocalypse is what time magazine calls.
A crisis point dean may get -- it threatens for disaster.
Something is happening to -- disappearing first denying it's even dangers of the decline in the third bites you you -- pollinated -- honey.
As you -- copes with a mystery of disappearing bees.
There's no argument that bee populations on declining we're.
She couldn't understand -- they were singing all we're saying give -- a chance.
And so if these are disappearing should we worry.
Well Mike's worried but Wally -- from perked up property and environmental research center says still -- Well John the demise of the honey bee has been greatly exaggerated and in my view.
What what they're referring to in that clip is calling it collapse disorder -- recent uptick can be disease which is concerning beekeepers.
But an important factor keep in mind is that -- are responded to disease and we actually have more -- -- -- -- in the United States today that we did before colony collapse disorder hit the beekeeper can just make more bees make more queen's how does that work.
Individual insect he's only live about six weeks but whole colonies of 30000 -- are managed by bee keepers and they can split a healthy call any victim.
Take half of these put it in an empty -- re queen purchase a new queen on the market and create a new high even in six weeks though have a full strength.
Calling -- ready for pollination and making -- But just the fact that they need to do that now suggests something bad is happening you would say.
It might be the pesticides Europe plans to ban and certain kinds of pesticides.
Could you say that's a good thing absolutely -- do you I think it's important that we put.
And the safety of our children in front of perhaps corporate profit I think that there's a lot of money to be made on these agro chemicals here but that's the scare that's been used.
By the -- -- chemical people for everything chemicals make our lives better without these pesticides.
Pet food wouldn't cost much more they have to use much more land they'd have to use other insecticides which might.
Peer to for a new unit -- to -- -- have been viewed as green environmentally beneficial.
-- -- -- -- -- A corn farmer will purchase -- that is coated in this insecticide it has taken up systemically.
And so -- in the plant this in the fruit exactly.
There are corn plant -- it's been a poisonous to the worms that but try to get the plant.
What this -- what this makes unnecessary as the farmer indiscriminately.
Spraying his his field of pesticide later on so to ban new nicotine or pesticides now would be to resulted in the greater application of pesticides.
More spraying more runoff into the water more environment -- -- Thank you Wally -- click next it's fire season.
Putting out these massive blazes is -- job that must be done by government right.
What you think you know is not self.
Wildfires raging out of control right now in Texas a raging wildfire -- killing two people in the state of Colorado.
Summer is wildfires -- Now this is a libertarian child but even many libertarians say fighting fires is one of the few things that government must do.
Who's gonna do it if not government.
Well private companies that -- you probably vote -- that.
Nearly half the people the federal government uses to fight wildfires work for private companies.
It's admit that fire fighting must be done by governments in some parts of America if your house catches fire it's a private business that'll come to put it out.
He if you trail is assistant chief of the privately run fire department and George.
So how does this work the house catches fire you put it out -- the -- cinema bill.
It can work that way but generally folks pay us ahead of time.
They subscribe for our services.
This helps lower their insurance rates he insurance company when they buy homeowner's insurance often says you better get cover yes and that helps lower their insurance rate.
Which means they save money and in fact the amount of money they say -- -- insurance.
Actually pays for the subscription fee plus to get the pocket so sometimes.
But not all list but some time off and you're always your fees are about if your house is worth a 100000 blogs about a hundred dollars per year.
If it's a 300000 dollar house 320 bucks per year.
And is that cheaper than what we do what I had other people pay in taxes for their fire department.
Yes it is cheaper and look at our overall budget for doing three services fire EMS and security.
Lots cheaper than most of the government.
-- how can you be cheaper for -- the same work.
It comes in being efficient with what you do and watching how you spend your money and stuff and our board of directors a bunch of great guys who.
Have business experience -- that really helps to saves a lot of money for -- You often pay less for a fire truck yes we do not talk with a variety of parties across the nation and one that I talked with.
I was just asking you some simple questions about.
What are you pay for fire trucks and bubble -- a -- and the next thing I know -- tell me what would pay 500000 dollars for our fire trucks -- We don't pay that much you okay we only pay about 250000.
What's the difference the difference was about.
An extra four to six inches on the length of the cab of the truck for the firefighters -- in air -- seats.
And I'm thinking you're riding five.
Miles to a -- maybe at the most.
For five or ten minutes and then turnaround running back and you're paying twice what I'm paying.
I -- -- -- fire trucks for the price of his one.
And it most of the people subscribe they pay your fears of people who don't you know to stiff let me put the fire out and says write a bill that's right -- most of them pay.
Yes and now we're under no legal obligation to respond but we do respond simply because we want to help people were firefighters.
We wanna do what's right our -- -- the whole -- home on -- we wanna get in there and help people.
So we do and then we go through -- billing company who actually sins in the bill and unfortunately.
That can literally be tens of thousands of dollars depending on the amount of time and hours and what's involved.
So it's harder to pay up for its much smarter it's cheap it lowers your insurance rates it helps you out.
And what else do you do this more efficient the government the part.
-- will mostly it's the fact that we're very entrepreneurial.
We are open to ideas as to how we can expand our services.
We had a local company wanted us to provide three levels of service from the first response -- our first response medical and security service.
And we -- with a little bit got their ideas of what they want and we left that meeting got in our car from him back our headquarters and -- it.
How are we gonna do security in -- fire and EMS we do haven't done that powerful idea how to we're going to do that and we started.
Think you know over in less than a month we -- come back even with the players saying this is what it will cost we can do it and they chose to contract with any government department.
The problem they run into is it's got to go -- before counselor commissioner and -- and body.
They might take two or three months to decide whether or not they even -- -- considerate.
-- when they do -- they have no incentives to do more work where they might make more money and we're a nonprofit we're not.
We're not doing there are for profit private there are for profit but we are a non -- we have volunteers.
We about a 140.
And that saves taxpayer.
Huge amounts of money -- -- may not know that most firemen in America are volunteers.
They are about.
-- believe national park association has 69 has about six amount percent.
Across the nation but your guys volunteer because they like to help people they love helping people.
There -- it for that reason alone -- thank you very much coming -- myths about mosquito.
-- -- -- -- and burying.
His summer people drive more more you drive them where you -- -- get the best possible mileage so how do you do that and what are myths about drive it.
Let's ask a race car driver Lauren fix who calls herself the car coach.
Warm welcome thank you know -- some of our myths to save gas this summer turn off the air conditioner that makes sense.
Inflate your tires change the oil every 3000 miles and now and then flush out -- -- -- so last first flush out the transmission.
Flushing out the engine and transmission.
Is absolutely one of the biggest scams and out there the reason you don't want to do that as -- taking out.
All of those important things that make lubrication of the engine working what your engine to function properly when you flush out all the additives and all the lovely detergents are put in there.
You're -- have car problems so.
That's quite big oil can't -- is is advertising this for about fifty bucks sure there are advertising it's an up sell you want a big egos -- you watch the super meal.
At exactly what is -- and the truth is.
If you change -- oil.
The proper intervals he's netbook in the glove box I thought connections and -- -- packs.
That is the correct way to do it -- number to increase the tire pressure and that makes sense because too little.
Pressure you get -- mileage right.
But actually doing is you're wearing -- the tire prematurely your affecting your performance your breaking your handling in your fuel economy.
What it won't handle as well with extra year note will back you blessed tires on the grounds he when he is a crackdown which is the number inside your driver's door.
Check your tire pressure once a month.
This where it's just logical if you couldn't stand the heat turn off the air conditioner.
Well that does sound good but newer vehicles are designed with the windows closed and some of these.
Vehicles have electric air conditioning so it makes sense to have the windows up to get the best air flow.
And of course right -- conditioning it's not gonna affect fuel economy that the aerodynamics with the windows.
Up closed -- so much better right.
And then and changing the oil watching TV I would think this is someone must do every 3000 -- You know I.
Welcome here in her car every rebound tomorrow remember him on my -- -- -- -- I -- That's what I hear.
Every 3000 miles is great for their pocketbook but not good for your pocket -- -- -- some vehicles have synthetic oil and if you're reading your owner's manual again check that owners Mayo could be 7500 and even 101000 miles if you have a full synthetic oil.
Running full synthetic oils better for your engine.
Better fuel economy better performance and better for the emissions less emissions.
Washing your car.
Yes I would think so it's so confused dish so no actually using -- simple strip off the wax just like it takes the -- -- plates.
-- degrees offered and the way accept your cart -- automotive products -- -- apple.
Last minute they're all these gadgets advertise they'll improve your mind only 15% more and through the air filter the crank case whenever.
99.9 percent of them are total false they're absolutely a -- think magnets -- that I have found a few that work -- test -- myself.
There are couple additives this is one -- that I found it helps balance -- and ought to actually works it's about four dollars for container.
But in improve my fuel economy by three to four mile later.
Second as you've written the carmakers are under enormous pressure to get more mile yes there was something they could do when they choke point.
Absolutely I would I believe viewing your test on this thing well this what I know works is a couple other products -- found that work this particular one that went automatic top companies use -- they have more at stake and Edwards testing ability absolutely but the truth is they haven't purchased this yet this is a brand new product that I testing new things as they hit the marketplace I'm sure eventually.
The -- by this company -- come with our own version of it.
They know what works and the churches -- -- -- gadgets and gizmos 99.9 percent of them are a hoax.
Thank you Lauren fix coming up.
Will getting its -- protect you from the sun.
Is it dangerous to -- right FDA eat.
The -- and others summer -- coming up.
I thought it he said -- -- keep on its -- And wind she does -- which will she make the bite worst.
And what attracts mosquitoes.
Doctor Keri Peterson has researched a bunch of summer health meant -- let's start with the mosquito bites.
Myth or truth you scratch on him.
They get worse.
That's truth -- not -- was.
What happens when you get -- by mosquitoes she actually leaves Salina under the sheets on the so it's -- woman -- it.
It's issued a -- only female mosquitoes bite actually little piece of trivia.
So when -- -- daily the little -- under the skin and the body looks at that as a foreign substance and it reacts to it to try to remove it.
And in that process a lot of chemicals come along one called his -- and has to mean is the chemical that causes redness and swelling and itching in the characteristic -- -- EC.
If you scratch it you now exacerbate.
That inflammatory process all those chemicals come racing back to the skin and the -- gets worse.
And last longer.
And last longer that's and it makes it more difficult to heal your aggravating the process or at other myths I've heard that -- mosquitoes bite people have sweet blood.
That's a myth actually -- with sweet blood -- it.
I don't know I don't know where that term came from there's no such thing as sweet blood.
What we do know is that mosquitoes are attracted to carbon dioxide which is aghast that week's Halloween -- -- so few brief more rapidly -- if you're exercising they're more likely to be attracted to you or if you're pregnant or if you're pregnant actually pregnant women are more likely to get it.
Because they -- more heavily and they have a higher content.
A carbon dioxide in their breath.
Also body heat is contributing factor and pregnant women have a higher body heat.
More likely to attract mosquitoes and if you exercise again more likely moving on if you get a base -- and then that prevents -- That is any minute now there is some.
Truth to that in -- based Tamil -- -- about an SPF of four.
So if he normally burn in twenty minutes that's now -- it.
An eighty minutes however protection however what are we trying to protect against for trying to protect against UV damage UV damage causes skin cancer.
Entry -- aging the based hand does the same exact thing.
So you're not.
Alleviating -- the damage done to your skin it's simply by getting the base tenure delaying the bird but the wrinkles and a crummy low end can't have arrest just as quick exactly.
Your eyeballs can get -- they can't.
Many people don't realize -- I actually I had a patient who came in a couple of days ago.
He said I was out on the boat all saying this past weekend and the next thing I like my eyes -- substance of the -- in your idols got sunburned.
The UV rays those -- the symptoms blood shot eyes slate sensitivity extra -- -- extra tearing are the symptoms that you've done some damage your eyes.
So it's very important to Wear sunglasses that have UV protection.
This don't they all know not all of them do they'll have some -- not necessarily you really have to look on the label not all do.
And assuming you can trust the label let's move on points jelly fish stings they can be nasty and if you -- The sitcom friends you may think you know the cure.
You can do.
Yeah the -- Every chance.
I've heard this myth it's a -- there's no evidence to show that.
Peeing on a jelly fish staying helps at all but what we might who now works in some cases at -- can detect -- two it can potentially irritate the skin.
What can work is white vinegar if you Sokol wash cloth and white vinegar and you place it on the -- about thirty minutes.
Something about the acidity of the vinegar can in activate the stinger of the jelly fish to -- that instead OK last Smith still -- -- full stomach.
This is an old wives' tale that is perpetuated for decades.
-- you've got to wait half an hour you don't have to wait it's a myth the idea behind mess is that.
When you eat the food is divert a blood is diverted.
To the got to help you digest and then when you go in a pool if the blood is in the got housing and gets the muscles you get cramps and then you -- Right that's that that's the thought makes sense it's never actually been documented and in fact the American academy of pediatrics and the American Red Cross.
Have never made recommendations to weight after having a -- Now what may happen is that the act of swimming your adrenaline is up the blood circulates more that -- -- to the muscle that could contract to see you do get a warning if you do let's say you do get a little -- it's not gonna be debilitating pain and not be able to get out of the pool in time.
Fletcher out in the ocean in the ocean.
Again it never been documented.
Thank you doctor Peterson coming up does a full moon really make people crazy.
If -- -- -- should you buy one of those roach motel.
We devote more minutes next.
Often what we think we now is not so that's what I -- -- than my years of consumer report.
I wrote that book about it.
