~ Sunny Days / Keepin' the / Prostate Away ~

(Why yes, I have a two year old, why do you ask?)

While scientists have noticed correlations between prostate cancer and things like men living in northern latitudes or having dark skin, only recently has a study been completed that tries to find a strong correlation between prostate cancer and exposure to sunshine. Their findings indicate it's probably vitamin D that reduces the risk, and the reduction in risk can be as much as 50%.

Makes me feel even better about my afternoon bike rides!

Add calcium to the vitamin D, you and Ellen both take it daily. Cures all sorts of problems, at least according to recent data.

GAAAAAAAAAH and here I spent years staying out of the sun to avoid skin cancer!

Sunlight: the new eggs.

Tat - everything in moderation. That seems to work rather well for almost everything. Except maybe arsenic. Or cyanide. But it definitely works for CH3CH2OH - the liquid of the Goddess...
