Darkness is something we seem to instinctively avoid. Why shouldn’t we? The brightest light in nature is the sun, and the sun reduces all-cause mortality. That is a fancy way of saying that the sun reduces your risk of death. End of story. We are being frightened by dermatologists and other doctors in modern times into avoiding the sun, but they are completely missing this simple, miraculous fact. Just like moths to a flame, we are drawn to any light, because light enables us to work, and work is what we have to do to survive and to thrive on planet earth. However, we all know that we can easily work ourselves to death, and this is why so many people today are struggling to survive to the same age as their parents or grandparents, who grew up in an age of relative darkness.
Sunlight protects us from death. The more sun you get, the lower your chances of developing:
Diabetes, type 1 or 2
Cancer, and even skin cancer so long as you avoid getting sunburned...
