Benefit from Sun without the Skin Cancer

Summer is a great time of year. Days are long, everything is growing and changing at an incredible rate, and the sun is shining. This is when we spend a lot more time out in the fresh air and sunshine.

In Europe back in the Middle Ages, fresh air, sunshine and water (including baths) were considered bad for your health, and thus avoided. In the 20th century we came to worship the sun. But due to our inherent disrespect for Nature we have turned many healthy elements of our world into things that are potentially harmful. We have polluted the air that we breathe and the water we drink and swim in. We have also weakened the protective ozone layer that tempers the harshness of sunlight, making it less tolerable for living things on this beautiful planet that is our home.
