Re: Beware of Doris

Daily Mail: eight inches of snow and floods set to bring travel chaos across Britain.

Met Office: likely there will be snow in the far north of England and for much of Scotland

Re: Beware of Doris

Except I was replying to Strat's post and I don't call Humberside the far north of Britain - actually more like the midlands

Glad it doesn't effect us Southerners! We'll be basking in warm sunshine and dipping our toes in the warm sea Thumbs Up

Re: Beware of Doris

I always think of Sheffield as being in the North but we seem to be classified as Midlands or North Midlands or even East Midlands Huh

Re: Beware of Doris

Talking of weather, it was mentioned on TV last night that Rickets is on the increase in this country, for some people this is caused by a lack of sunlight which most of us know anyway. However, what many of us (probably all of us) didn't know is that sun cream also blocks the Vitamin D we absorb from sunlight. What a quandary, do we protect ourselves from skin cancer or ignore that in favour of not getting Rickets? Undecided

Re: Beware of Doris

Or we could buy vitamin D from the Chemist but why pay for something that comes free with sunlight.

Re: Beware of Doris

That stuff from the chemist won't do any good, not unless it's the high strength stuff doctors prescribe.

Yes free with sunlight but that was my point, so is skin cancer if we don't protect ourselves.

Re: Beware of Doris

Not so sure that Sunlight, AKA subathing, causes cancer of the skin...

 

I spent many hours ( 2 years in Mauritius) ( and several at sea in the Far East.)..  in the tropical band of the world.... sunbathing on tropical beaches for hours on end...Yup !  I went red to start with... then, as time passed, I gradually became a nice "light coffee colour" ! !..  Never used any form of sun cream/blocker....

 

Many others spend a week or two on the beaches of sunny spain or southern france... and, like me, do not suffer from skin cancer..

 

Sunlight aka sunbating MAY be blamed for the cancer, but I think it is more likely to be in the actual bodily make-up of genes and other parts that... combined with subathing... is the cause. 

 

The medical profession wish to keep it simple to exhort the masses, not to go subathing, thus reducing the mass numbers of cases... which then ( as far as they are concerned ) proves that sunbathing DOES cause cancer...
