The days are heating up and we modern folk scurry into our air conditioning to hide. While it's true that we need sun screen to protect our skin, the sun is not our enemy. There is a reason why so many Americans suffer from Vitamin D deficiencies and that is our knee-jerk avoidance of the sun. Just like any plant or animal, we are creatures of Nature and need some sunlight. So put on your sun screen, go out before or after the heavy heat of the day and soak up a little sun. Your body will thank you.
