#15 - Da' Beards - Errything Sunlight & Health

Dr. Sloan and I sit down in this episode of Da' Beards to discuss the plethora of information on sunlight exposure as it pertains to human health. The sun is vital to all life on Earth, but throughout human history our relationship with the sun has varied greatly. Just as with much of the health advice that floods our social media platforms and email boxes, the information on sunlight can be very confusing.

How much sun should one get?

Is sunscreens safe?

What other factors impact the health implications of sun exposure?

This and much more is covered in throughout the episode.
