Read this this morning and had to post it as this year's top "No Shit" post:
Grandma Was Right: Sunshine Helps Kill Germs IndoorsResearchers at the University of Oregon set up a study of dusty, dollhouse-size rooms to compare what happens in rooms exposed to daylight through regular glass, rooms exposed to only ultraviolet light and those kept dark. They used a mix of dust collected from actual homes in the Portland area and let the miniature rooms sit outdoors while keeping the insides at a normal room temperature.
After 90 days (because that's how long dust can hang around, even if you vacuumed), they sampled the dust and analyzed the types of bacteria present.
Tell me something I don't know.
Okay, how's about this:
The ultra violet rays from the sun is good for
- bone health
- supports the immune system
- protects against dementia and brain aging
- good for loosing excess fat
- essential for decreasing symptoms of asthma
- strengthens teeth
It's now rained for ten-days straight here in Dallas and I'm loving it!
