A new Canadian study suggests dehydration may not be the threat to a sporting performance that athletes have been led to believe. But lead author Stephen Cheung (CHUNG) cautions that the findings should not be interpreted to mean athletes should routinely allow themselves to become dehydrated. (For years sports bodies have urged people to replace the fluids they are sweating out during exercise. But this research, done at Brock University in St. Catharines, Ontario, suggests constant hydration may not be as important as has been suggested. The study is published in the June issue of the Scandinavian Journal of Medicine and Science in Sports.)
