Does Avoiding The Sun Shorten Your Lifespan?.

Chris Kresser examines the Swedish research on sun exposure and life expectancy. In my opinion it’s essential to look at one’s own personal situation, where you live, how much sun you get, what kind of skin you have, what kind of outdoor activities and when and also your Vitamin D status (testing in Spring and Autumn). There are very few sunscreens I would ever put on my highly sensitive skin and so many of them contain dangerous chemicals. I find clothing and hats much more useful than the creams. I think the Australian practices of slathering sunscreen are not healthy for many reasons but nor were the older Australian practices of fair people getting burned every year from childhood onwards. Moderation intelligence and attention to bio-individuality is the way to go in my opinion!
