Welcome home my great friend.
Truth should always be told.
In fact I never thought I would say this, but the movie Twilight can actually teach us something about improving our health.
Please have you noticed in that movies that vampires are typically the ones seen wearing sunglasses whenever daylight comes around?
In fact they have a good reason for that.
The sun is KILLING them (or in the case of Twilight making them twinkle like a sequence dress, but who is worried about the details…)
Now, the big question is are you a vampire?
It might be cool if you were, but you arr not a vampire.
Get this straight.
There is no need for you to fear the sun, and as a matter of fact, a lot of health issues are caused because of an extreme LACK of sunlight that you definitely need to know about.
It is now proven medically that a lack of sunlight can lead to osteoporosis, cancer, and depression among other issues.
And the SPF 1 Billion sunscreen we have been told to wear has now been proven to be a known carcinogen and actually CAUSES skin cancer.
Many people still have no idea about this, but the research is clear, and it will be common knowledge in the next few decades.
Now, as far as the sun being important for the maintenance of healthy vision, you do not want to find out decades later that you should have took it easy on popping on the shades every time you went out side.
Provide below are 4 important reasons that wearing sunglasses can be dangerous for your health:
1.You need natural sunlight to help regulate your hormones:
Your ancestors did not wear sunglasses at all.
Not that they did not need accessories for their animal skin blouses, but it just was not a matter of necessity.
They did not NEED to block the natural light from their eyes.
Sure they would avoid the hot midday sun, but humans are not nocturnal creatures, so during the daylight is when we would really thrive.
The sun offers an unreplicable spectrum of light that enhances and maintains numerous processes in your brain.
Sunlight that reaches your eyes stimulates the hypothalamus in your brain, which is connected to the pineal gland. The pineal gland is largely responsible for regulating your sleep/wake cycles via the secretion of melatonin (the good sleep hormone).
The natural contrast of light during the day and night that your body (and eyes) are exposed to helps assure healthy hormonal secretions and healthy sleep. Sunglasses inhibit this process. It is a simple as that.
2. Less adaptable to light and dark:
Your eyes functiond like any of the other organs in your body: If you do not use them, you lose them.
If your eyes are not consistently exposed to the various array of UV light, then your ability to adapt to light will decline as well as your vision.
3. Eye fatigue:
Because your eyes are designed to interact with sunlight, wearing sunglasses for long hours can become a significant stress.
Your eyes are being forced to operate, perceive, and take in data through an unnatural “tint”.
4. Sunglasses with improper UV protection can be far worse than not wearing sunglasses at all:
In bright sunlight, your eyes will naturally try to protect themselves from too much UV light getting in by shrinking the size of the pupils. But when you artificially create darkness over your eyes with standard sunglasses, your pupils open up WIDE and allow in even more potentially harmful UV light.
So please try as much as you can to avoid wearing shades in the sun just for the sake of fashion.
If you are going to wear them for temporary eye protection, then make sure that they are truly UV protective.
This can be especially helpful if you do any snow-based winter sports to help you avoid “sunburn of the eye”.
And if you just think you are cooler than me and everyone else, wearing UV protective sunglasses will give you a safer way to rock your shades.
Thank you for your time.
