DrAfter getting up and leaving the house, there is one common habit that everyone can do to reduce their risk of cancer: sunbathing. A British study concluded that just 30 seconds a day was enough to reduce the chances of getting sick.
At issue is the possibility of what is known as near infrared light, or “near infrared” (NIR). This light reaches its peak between sunrise and nine in the morning.
As oncologist Mohamed Mounib explained to the Talker portal, this light provides a higher level of protection than eating 2,500 bananas a day.
It ends up reducing your chances of contracting the disease from two to one in ten. NIR is not visible to the human eye and its effect decreases throughout the day. The ideal is to suck early in the morning.
Taking a walk in the morning after getting up or simply going to a window or balcony are some of the ways you can receive this light. Various potentially cancerous cells produced by the human body can naturally be destroyed in this way.
Wearing sunglasses or looking out a window at home or in a car does not have the same effect as glass blocks as part of the spectrum of this light. On cloudy days it is also possible to receive NIR, but you have to extend the exposure time a bit.
Always be the first to know.
