Timeline PhotosIs the Sun Good or Bad? So we hear the sun is good you…and then the sun is bad for you…and then later the sun is good for again (or is bad for you now…I just can’t keep it straight). Isn’t this game of ‘good-bad-good’ played on just about every topic under the sun (terrible pun I know…sorry about that)? We are a society immersed in fear…fear…and more fear.
So, the sun being another object of fear isn’t any big surprise. The notion that we, people that live on the surface of this planet, should cover–up and stay out of the sun as much as possible has always struck a strange cord with me. I could believe something like this if we, in fact, lived underground and were nocturnal cave dwellers; only to come out at night to work and play. But we are not nocturnal by nature. We sleep at night and are active during the day.
Did nature get this wrong?
Could this perhaps be nature’s biggest joke on us? Or are we the ones who are confused? There is a reason why we are active during the day rather than at night; and our physiology proves it:
The pineal gland provides melatonin at night and serotonin during the dayWe have excellent day vision and poor night visionVitamin D, a vitamin-like hormone that our body makes only with direct sun exposureNot to mention that we are “programmed” to be drawn to the sun. Don’t we all just love that warm sunny day? Doesn’t it do absolute wonders on your state of mind?
Nonetheless, we’ve been told to stay out of the sun, cover up, and lather on the sunscreen on.
And aren’t we totally brain washed regarding sunscreen? We believe that if we don’t put on the sunscreen, we’ll get wrinkles and/or get skin cancer. Right? Sound familiar? And the latest myth about of being out in the sun; it is more dangerous due to the shrinking ozone layer causing the sun rays to be stronger than ever before, of course causing more skin cancer (but that’s another topic all together.)
