Interesting study...sunlight helps with the exposure to vitamin D, but then we still have to watch the risk of skin cancer...BD

In a study reported online this week in the American Journal of Epidemiology , the researchers found that women with high sun exposure had half the risk of developing advanced breast cancer, which is cancer that has spread beyond the breast, compared to women with low sun exposure. These findings were observed only for women with naturally light skin color. The study defined high sun exposure as having dark skin on the forehead, an area that is usually exposed to sunlight.

Exposure to sunlight may decrease risk of advanced breast cancer
