Take a Sunbath

Not only plants absorb and metabolize sunlight. Human beings do it too. However, the relationship between sun exposure and health in humans isn’t as straightforward as we might want it to be. Genes are a factor of how humans metabolize sunlight; as is skin type. For instance, people with pale skin that burns easily under the sun are more likely to get skin cancer if exposed too much to sun. The timing and duration of exposure is also a crucial factor when it comes to how our bodies metabolize sunlight.

Sunbathing we can avoid many diseases, and cure many others.

Sunbaths should be taken exposing the skin in morning hours, before 10 a.m. Also, we should avoid prolonged exposures during summer season.

What are the benefits?
