The Don't Sweat It webisode was developed by the National Defense Education Program LabTV.
Abstract: Scientists study the effects of hot and cold environments on human physiology using a climatic chamber that can simulate tropical and arctic conditions. Sweating is necessary to keep the body from overheating when the temperature rises or during exercise. Experiments will determine if DEET (an insect repellent) interferes with sweating.
