Filed under: Healthy HabitsWhile "getting some sun" on a regular basis is very good for you (produces vitamin D inside the body), too much exposure to the sun's rays has been linked to cancer. Specifically, skin cancer (melanoma). Just how much is enough, then, when it comes to sun exposure?
I'm no fan of sunscreens due to all the chemicals used (and the atrocious smell). The solution is to limit your exposure, right? A new review of research shows that limiting sun exposure is better for the prevention of skin cancer than using sunscreen alone.
The next time you think about spending an entire day under those rays, you may want to re-think and only spend a partial day (or a few hours) outside underneath our golden friend.
