There is a story out today that claims, women who tan more than others, may live longer!! The study says, as long ladies don't overdo it, the tend to live longer. I have always heard that the sun emits vitamin D, but enough to make you live longer? In a recent study of 40,000 women, Dr. Hakan Olsson found that women who sun bath more often, often have a lower risk of getting blood clots, diabetes and some tumours. In my unscientific survey, ladies that tan seem to be more energized. Its as if the color you get from sun bathing gives you that extra lil' step in your everyday life.
