More Sunshine = Longer Life

Because there is so much confusion on the subject, I have written a couple of times lately about the importance of sunshine to a healthy life. Those posts are here and here.

A new study confirms these findings. I reproduce both the headline and the photo (for scientific purposes, of course) below:

Women who sunbathe live longer: study

To be clear: Excessive sun, especially when it leads to sunburn, is unhealthy. But, in general, modern society has gone too far with skin cancer concerns and is risking broader health problems due to lack of exposure to sunlight.
