You know I like to present the other side of the coin frequently, and today this regards the blind allegiance to sunscreen and fear of the sun that has been commercially developed over the past decade. “There’s ample research”:http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/health-and-wellbeing/health-news/sunlight-cuts-risk-of-many-cancers-397450.html that sunlight also prevents skin cancer, and the increase in skin cancer actually correlates nicely with the increase in sunscreen! You can hear my “watch my first treatise on this here”:http://www.beachwalks.tv/2006/04/28/beach-walk-67-sunscreen-skin-cancer-hmmm/, just keep in mind I shot and edited that myself, and it’s a little long. The info is still good though! I hope you hop over – there are a lot of good links in that post!
For the locals; I shot this at the boat ramp. Hard to understand how we have lost so much sandy beach front in only 2.5 years.
