It’s easy to get the idea that sunscreen is necessary for sun protection.
But according to a new study, wearing a sunscreen is actually less likely to help you live longer, and a lot more likely to be associated with heart disease, depression and even suicide.
In fact, a study of nearly 600,000 men found that people who used sunscreen daily had significantly lower odds of dying from cardiovascular disease than people who didn’t.
Sunscreen has long been considered one of the most effective ways to protect against sunburn.
But the benefits of sunscreen have been proven over and over again.
And many studies have linked it to a better chance of preventing skin cancer, as well as preventing and treating depression, which can also be linked to sunburn and other conditions.
In a new paper published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, researchers examined the relationship between sunburn prevention and mortality rates among men and women in the U.S. According to the researchers, sunburn is associated with a significantly higher risk of death from all causes and cardiovascular disease, as opposed to the overall risk for men and the overall health of the population overall.
Sunburn has been associated with increased risks of depression and heart disease in both sexes, according to the authors of the study.
The study also found that sun exposure during the summer months was significantly associated with higher death rates, but was not related to higher mortality rates for both sexes.
“The relationship between exposure to UVB and mortality is consistent across all age groups and sexes and is consistent regardless of whether the subjects were exposed to UVBs in the summer or the winter months,” lead author Dr. Daniel K. Riehl, an associate professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, told Reuters Health.
“This finding is consistent with previous studies which have shown that exposure to the sun is associated not only with increased risk of cardiovascular disease but also with increased mortality from cardiovascular diseases.”
Researchers also found a correlation between higher levels of sun exposure in the spring and a reduced risk of heart disease among those in the study who had more sun exposure than those who had less sun exposure.
“Our results indicate that the sun exposure effect in humans may be more pronounced in spring, the season of peak sun exposure,” Dr. Rieshl said.
“It may also be associated in other ways with reduced risk for other cardiovascular diseases.
We are hopeful that the study findings provide a way to better understand the relationship among sun exposure and mortality in a population.”
While there is no evidence that the effects of sunburn on human health is limited to the winter, the results of the new study indicate that sunbathing is still a good idea in summer, according Dr. Michael Breslow, a physician and director of the Center for Health and Aging at the Cleveland Clinic, who was not involved in the research.
“While sunbathes are a healthy activity, they should be done in moderation, and sun exposure is associated only with reduced mortality and heart attacks in our population,” Dr Bresold told ReutersHealth.
“If you are going to get in the sun at least once a day, it is definitely a good thing.”
