Science Lied Again: Sunlight Could Reduce Death Rate From All Causes

They told us we would all die of skin cancer if we exposed ourselves to natural daylight for three seconds on a dull day. Slather yourselves in factor twenty five million subscreen or risk turning into a tumor they said. Lying scientists, they were just trying to sell sun products.

Now comes an honest (i.e. not funded by Big Pharma) investigation into the effects of sunlight. “We suspect that the benefits to heart health of sunlight will outweigh the risk of skin cancer” it says in typically guarded language. Once again scientists take decades to discover what the rest of us already knew. Sunshine is good for us. We evolved in sunshine, it made us strong and nimble. If we had evolved in darkness we would all be like Gollum.

But for years all we have had from the science tits is dire warnings about the harmful effects of UV rays. It was all lies, the usual story with the Scienceologists and their scientific methodeffingology, rig the data and make sure you get the result the customer wants.

A lot of us have been boldly basking where no man has basked before for reasons like topping up vitamin D to avoid rickets (making a comeback in California thanks to science induced paranoia and Factor 75), mood enhancement, happiness, skin issues, liver health, relief from arthritic and muscle pain and generally just sticking two fingers up to lying science tits and “health experts”. Now there’s never a reason to fear harm or feel guilty about gettiung a bit of sunshine, it waas another scam to put your hard earned in Big Pharma’s pocket. Get out in the sunshine, you could save your heart, stave off cancer and improve as well as prolonging your life.

Pollution Health Warning For Easter Weekend

From The Daily Telegraph


Vulnerable people, such as asthmatics, the elderly and heart patients, were advised to be particularly vigilant to any change in their conditions and seek medical help if they experience difficulties.

Officials advised people who suffer from a shortage of breath on hot sunny days to avoid strenuous outdoor activity, especially in the afternoon.

Children with asthma can play outside normally, but might need to increase their use of medicines such as inhalers.

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs issued the warning, covering the whole of England and Wales, ahead of what is expected to be the hottest Easter since 1984.

It is the first smog alert in two years, the last being on July 17 2009, but such warnings are normally annual events.

How wonderful to us those caring, concerned leftie elitists are. Having made smoking a crime almost on a par with genocide they then embarked on campigns to demonise alcohol, tasty food, sex with people you don’t know (spreads diseases), sex with people you know (is probably some form of abuse), sex with yourself (you must be depressed), eating (causes obesity), not eating (causes anorexia), cars (cause accidents), loud music and quiet music (both annoy people), music made by non ethnic people – i.e. black – because it annoys ethnic minorities, anti social behaviour (because it annoys the crap out of the authorities when they are asked to do something about it), social behaviour (leads to drinking eating, smoking and sex), sunshine (causes skin cancer), being working class (leads to smoking, drinking, sex, independence and reading George Orwell, Christianity, Christmas and Easter (both might offend non Christians you know), chocolate and bad taste humour.

Not content with trying to ban or control all that they are now sticking health warnings on the first bit of decent weather we have had in months.

Mustn’t go outside kiddiwinks, the air on hot days might poison you.

Ignore them. Do they thing they really most want to ban you from doing but dare not say so. Think for yourself !

Happy Easter.
