Sun is really.... Good!??

With Summer officially upon us...  Sun exposure, sunscreen, & cancer are all the hot (all pun intended) topics right now. BUT... did you know that exposure to the sun actually has health benefits... that by getting moderate natural exposure, it can actually help prevent cancer (say what?!)... and that by using sunscreen with you may actually be increasing your chances of skin-cancer rather than reducing it?  It's all true. I could write a very lengthy post on the cool things I have learned about the sun through my research... but since some of my favorite bloggers have already beat me to it - rather than blogging redundantly - I'll just forward you on to them!
