Here in Chicago, the weather is just starting to warm up, and we are beginning to see more sunlight. I thought that the beginning of spring was the perfect opportunity to talk about the healthy benefits of sunlight.
Every generation seems to have their own ideas about the sun and exposure to it. We seem to swing between getting too much exposure and too little. In the mid 20th century, sun block was not commonly used. People would bake in the sun slathered in baby oil, crisco, or lemon juice. Toward the latter part of the century, there was a big push for sun protection with people being urged to cover up, wear sunblock, and avoid the sun's "harmful rays". At the moment, we seem to be somewhere in the middle. Healthcare professionals have been making more of an effort to learn about the benefits and dangers of sun exposure and to learn how much sun is most beneficial.
