Want a Competitive Advantage? Get Sun!

As I say, get outdoors! Get in the sun! Nature, the outdoors, the sun, in proper measure, are good for your health, cognition, attitude, and success.

In “Health Benefits of Sunbathing FAR Outweigh Risks, World Health Organization Says,” Sara Burrows writes:

The only concerning disease associated with the sun is malignant melanoma, which occurs mainly in the elderly, who lack pigment from underexposure and then get burned when they are exposed. Only one thousandth of a percent of the global population gets melanoma each year.

A much larger annual disease burden of 3.3 billion disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) worldwide is caused by underexposure to the sun, the organization says. DALYs measure how much a person’s expectancy of healthy life is reduced by premature death or disability caused by disease.

This figure includes bone disease, autoimmune diseases and far more life-threatening cancers.

If that’s not enough to get you in your bathing suit and out in the sun, here are 7 more reasons…

We need sunlight for so many other reasons, as well. As humans, as we have evolved, we need specific electromagnetic and gravitational fields to have optimal health — and to survive. Just the right ones, and no others. And not too much, nor too little.
