Five Dangerous Things About Summer

Summer's here, and we want you to stay safe. So here are five potentially dangerous things related to summer.

1. Insect bites. Mosquitos and ticks can carry different diseases, like Zika and Lyme disease.

2. Dehydration and heatstroke. Heat kills more people each year than tornados, hurricanes, floods, or cold weather.

3. Sunburns. They can be deadly in the long run because of skin cancer. Sunscreen is a must if you're going to be in the sun for any amount of time.

4. Drowning. More than 4,000 people drown every year. About 20% of them are kids under the age of 14.  (Earlier this week, we shared that getting your kid a neon swimsuit helps lifeguards and parents keep an eye on them.)

5. Food poisoning. It's more common in summer. Partly because people handle raw meat when they're grilling, and don't always wash their hands.
