Health & Sunshine

You can always count on one study to contradict another.  If you enjoy sunshine, this might be of interest.  A recent study of 30,000 Swedish women found that those who spent more time in the sun, actually lived longer, had less heart disease and fewer non-cancer deaths than those who reported less sun exposure. The down side was that those who spent more time in the sun had a higher percentage of cancer related deaths. The additional life effect on longevity was small, with a benefit of anywhere from 7 months to 2 years of extended life.  The theory is that exposure to the sun increases the production of vitamin D which in turn improves health benefits.  A little sunshine can go a long way to improving your health!  Everything in moderation!
