Scientists Say This Natural, No Exercise Trick Could Help You Lose Weight!

And it's FREE!

Recently, a study came out in the Journal of Internal Medicine which found that women are likely to have a longer life if they get higher degrees of sunshine.

In fact, the study discovered that there was even a noticeable dip in heart disease and various other conditions (like obesity, for example) with increased sun exposure as well.

The study was conducted on 29,518 Swedish women (25-64 years old) by recording their sunbathing patterns for 20 years! Conducted by the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, the study declared: "Women with active sun exposure habits were mainly at a lower risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and noncancer/non-CVD death as compared to those who avoided sun exposure. As a result of their increased survival, the relative contribution of cancer death increased in these women."

The study even deduced that dodging the sun = as harmful to you as smoking. "Non-smokers who avoided sun exposure had a life expectancy similar to smokers in the highest sun exposure group, indicating that avoidance of sun exposure is a risk factor for death of a similar magnitude as smoking. Compared to the highest sun exposure group, life expectancy of avoiders of sun exposure was reduced by 0.6 to 2.1 years."

And in case you're wondering about the increased likelihood of sun-induced skin cancer, the study proclaims that cutaneous melanoma (high-risk skin cancer) affected people that expose themselves to, and those who avoid, the sun—with almost 'no difference'.

Also, a Vitamin D deficiency was linked closely to a high insulin resistance—especially among people above the recommended weight. this can be a cause for low metabolism as well. The sun releases a natural gas called nitric oxide when it comes in contact with sunlight, and that naturally helps up metabolism, and speeds up weight loss.

It's about time you slapped on some SPF and basked in the rays of your God-given treadmill.
