I told them that I would first scrub the person down to eliminate any possible contaminants and then place them in a pool of filtered, distilled water. Before entering the pool I would measure the average sodium levels of the water and then measure the sodium levels after they had been swimming for a half hour. If these levels had increased significantly I would conclude that humans do indeed sweat while swimming.
