Too much sunlight is bad for the skin, but not enough may be a risk factor for stroke, according to a study presented here at the American Stroke Association’s International Stroke Conference.

This is SCIENCE. You may not argue with it. Red wine and sunsets; SCIENCE demands that you do this.
It also recommends a nice antipasto.
