Stay Safe and Healthy
Serious health problems can result from prolonged exposure to the cold. The most common cold-related problems are hypothermia and frostbite.
Cold temperatures can cause your body to lose heat faster than it can be produced, which can cause hypothermia.
Frostbite is an injury to the body caused by freezing. It causes a loss of feeling and color in parts of the body.
