How do humans (mammals) maintain body temperature when the ambient temperature is higher than body normal?
If it’s 112F where I am, how does my body maintain an internal temperature of 98.6F? How can I shed excess heat into an environment that is hotter than I am? Why am I not heating up inside every time I breathe in that hot air and my entire body surface is exposed to 112F? Does the body have a refrigeration mechanism?
