Science Marches Onward

A new study says that people who avoid the sun are twice as likely to die as those who don't. And here I'd always thought that people with a pronounced aversion to the sun were likely already dead.
Researchers followed 30,000 women for 20 years and found that those who avoided the sunshine were twice as likely to die.
 Their feet must be really sore by now. Makes you wonder if they even tried to introduce themselves.

The big problem with this study is that historically everyone who has been exposed to sunlight has eventually died anyway. Admittedly those who were never exposed to sunlight usually died at a very young age although in this case cause and effect are reversible.

Looks like Scott Adams ( came to the same conclusion.

Blessed be!
