How come if I’m the wannabe world adventure traveler that the wife-person is the one sunning herself on the warm sandy beaches of Kauai, while I’m home cleaning out the rain gutters?
Now, I don’t want to hear that turnabout is fair play, considering the month-long sailboat cruises along the Mexican Riviera, multi-day ski trips to Utah, or two-week dive trips to the Philippines I have taken.
Not that it is not true…I just don’t want to hear about it.
So, while I’m at home watching the grass grow, I heard about the latest scientific medical research finding that might be of interest to anyone—including the wife-person—who spends any amount of time sunning themselves on warm sandy beaches of Kauai, or anywhere else in the great outsides.
It comes out that as the SPF factor of the various sunscreens and sun blocks have crept up from 15 to 40 to 85 and beyond, we may have been smearing the wrong lotion, altogether, over our various exposed body parts.
The news article went like this,
"SLIP, slop, slap – and slurp" could be the new sun protection jingle, after researchers discovered a link between caffeine and lower rates of one type of skin cancer.
Women who [used] more than three cups of coffee a day had a 20 per cent lower risk of basal cell carcinoma.
So, the woman in the picture below, is either taking this news a little too far, or is just happy that it’s Halloween.
