Definitely not! Sea water contains a high amount of salt which means that if consumed, our body will have to work even harder to get rid of it. The kidneys would have to produce more urine until eventually we would become dehydrated leading to fatal consequences.
However, if you are stuck in the middle of the sea and don’t have access to fresh water, you could boil some sea water, capture the steam and condense it back into water so you’re effectively getting rid of the salt.
If you’re out on your boat this weekend, be sure to pack plenty of fresh water 💦. Ps. It was a Police boat 👮♀️ Take care and stay healthy 😘
Severe Heat Warning ☀🔥☀ After the past week of intense flooding and rain, the skies are opening up to give us Queenslanders a hot end to summer. Temperatures are set to soar and the UV index will be hitting up to 14, so it’s time to get sun smart.
Be sure to slip on sun protective clothing, slop on sunblock spf 30+, slap on a broad brimmed hat, seek shade and slide on wrap around glasses.
And remember to stay out of the sun during peak times from 10am to 3pm to reduce your risk of sun exposure and skin cancer in the future.
