I haven't used sunscreen since I was 15 (1978) and very rarely even then. Before Coppertone was invented in the 1940s, no one used sunscreen and skin cancer was extremely rare!
 
More failed conventional wisdom. I get daily sun... every day I can!

We were not meant to work and live in 'caves' and when we do venture outside... cover our skin in clothing or chemicals. 

"Researchers concluded that the conventional dogma, which advises avoiding the sun at all costs and slathering on sunscreen to minimize sun exposure, is doing more harm than actual good."
by PAUL FASSA According to a June 2014 article featured in The Independent (UK), a major study conducted by researchers at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden found that women who avoid sunbathing during the summer are twice as likely to die as those who sunbathe every day.   The epidemiological study followed 30,000 women for…

Alzheimer’s is a devastating disease whose incidence is clearly on the rise in America. Something in our current lifestyle is increasing the likelihood that we will succumb to Alzheimer’s. Two major contributors are our current obsession with low-fat diet, combined with the ever expanding use of statin drugs. 

ApoE-4, a particular allele of the apolipoprotein apoE, is a known risk factor. Since apoE plays a critical role in the transport of cholesterol and fats to the brain, it can be hypothesized that insufficient fat and cholesterol in the brain play a critical role in the disease process. In a remarkable study, it was found that Alzheimer’s patients have only 1/6 of the concentration of free fatty acids in the cerebrospinal fluid compared to individuals without Alzheimer’s. In parallel, it is becoming very clear that cholesterol is pervasive in the brain, and that it plays a critical role both in nerve transport in the synapse and in maintaining the health of the myelin sheath coating nerve fibers. An extremely high-fat (ketogenic) diet has been found to improve cognitive ability in Alzheimer’s patients. Read more:
An extremely high-fat (ketogenic) diet has been found to improve cognitive ability in Alzheimer's patients. These and other observations described below lead me to conclude that both a low-fat diet and statin drug treatment increase susceptibility to Alzheimer's.

Don’t toss those strawberry tops. http://ow.ly/yYHpl
If throwing away strawberry tops feels wasteful, turn them into a berry-infused water instead -- and stretch your berry budget a little farther.
