How to make ORT

Dr. Jan Gurley has been going to Haiti since the earthquake and is there now combating the disease, cholera, and the resulting severe dehydration that accompanies it. She and her friends have produced a short video that shows how to make Oral Rehydration Therapy (ORT) using salt, sugar, and bottle caps for measuring (4 caps sugar, 1 cap salt, and 500 ml clean water). Doctor Gurley hopes the video will go viral. Aid workers have smart phones that can show videos and many Haitians have video-enabled cell phones. Read more at Doctor Gurley's blog. Click here.

That's very interesting and glad it's working for them over there. Sugar, salt and water boiled. That would be a good thing for a runner. Thanks for sharing. Have a great weekend.
