Are Hot Tubs bad for childrens health?
It's recommended that no child under 5 be allowed in hot tubs but yeah, they'd notice when the child started having seizures like some do when they spike fevers. Hot tubs are set to automatically shut off after 15 minutes, the time it takes adults to start feeling the effects on increased body temps-- but consider a child whose body is so much smaller in size--the child's body would be well overheated far sooner than that of the adult. Babies aren't recommended to be in hot tubs at all and neither are pregnant women whose fetus can develop abnormalities by being exposed to the heat of hot tubs throughout the entire pregnancy. Hot tubs are dangerous and not for children, the elderly or pregnant women and I'm just focusing on the heat issue here. Bacterial exposure is another problem entirely.
