Sunshine helps in the fight against breast cancer

Yet another example of how poor calculation of risk can kill people. Dermatologists have been terrifying people with horror stories for decades. Throw in the environmentalists and their endless lectures about the hole in the ozone layer (anybody notice that they never talk about that any more?) and you’ve got a whole generation of people who are at higher risk for any number of cancers because of a lack of exposure to sunlight.

Skin cancer is bad, it can kill you but for most people it’s non-fatal and easily treatable.
