Why we sweat 23

A multi-billion-dollar industry has been built around our desire to hide the fact that we all sweat. Sarah Everts teaches journalism at Carleton University, and she joins host Krys Boyd to talk about why we fight our body’s natural function – and about what sweat can tell us about our health. Her book is “The Joy of Sweat: The Strange Science of Perspiration.”
